Recent advances in structural studies of heterometallic uranyl-containing coordination polymers and polynuclear closed species

Author affiliations

Abstract

An overview is given of recent structural studies on heterometallic uranyl-containing species, with particular emphasis on those formed with carboxylate ligands, showing the effect of the additional metal cations and ancillary ligands on the dimensionality, geometry and topology of the assemblies generated. These examples illustrate the level of elaboration which is now possible in the design and synthesis of both uranyl clusters and coordination polymers, properties and potential applications of which are also briefly discussed.
