η2-Sulfenamido complexes of uranium

Author affiliations


Thermally stable η2-sulfenamido complexes of uranium, U(η2-ButNSPh)41 and UCp*22-ButNSPh)X, X = Cl 2a or Br 2b, have been prepared by metathetical reactions of LiN(But)SPh with UCl4/PMe3 and UCp*2Cl2, respectively; 2 resists further substitution. Structure determination by X-ray diffraction shows that the bonding of the sulfenamido ligand is analogous to that found in its complexes with the early transition metals Ti, Zr, Mo and W. Indeed 1 is closely isostructural with the homoleptic zirconium complex, and 2a, 2b are effectively isostructural with ZrCp22-ButNSPh)X.
