Carbon monoxide coupling and functionalisation at a simple uranium coordination complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

A simple coordination complex of uranium(III), a uranium tris(amide), can selectively couple gaseous CO to the linear ynediolate [OCCO]2 dianion, at room temperature and pressure, regardless of the reagent stoichiometry. This product exhibits further reactivity upon warming in the form of the addition of a C–H bond of a methyl group across the C[triple bond, length as m-dash]C triple bond, this second carboncarbon bond forming reaction generating a functionalised enediolate dianion.
