Pentavalent uranium trans-dihalides and -pseudohalides

Author affiliations


Pentavalent uranium complexes of the formula UVX2[N(SiMe3)2]3 (X = F, Cl, Br, N3, NCS) are accessible from the oxidation of UIII[N(SiMe3)2]3 through two sequential, one-electron oxidation reactions (halides) and substitution through salt metathesis (pseudohalides). Uranium(V) mixed-halides are also synthesized by successive one-electron oxidation reactions.
