Activation and reduction of diethyl ether by low valent uranium: formation of the trimetallic, mixed valence uranium oxo species [U(CpRR′)(μ-I)2]33-O) (CpRR′ = C5Me5, C5Me4H, C5H4SiMe3)

Abstract

The reaction of UI3 and KCpRR′ (CpRR′ = pentamethylcyclopentadienyl, trimethylsilylcyclopentadienyl or tetramethylcyclopentadienyl) in diethyl ether results in the two-electron reduction of the solvent to form trimetallic, mixed valence uranium oxo species.
