Abstract

Syntheses and characterization of UCl2(Aracnac)2, UI2(Aracnac)2, and PuI2(Aracnac)2 are reported (Aracnac denotes a bis-phenyl β-ketoiminate ligand where Ar = 3,5-tBu2C6H3). Structural analyses and computations show significant metal–ligand orbital interaction differences in U(IV)vs.Pu(IV) bonding.
