Abstract

Anhydrous thorium tetrachloride complexes ThCl4(DME)2, ThCl4(1,4-dioxane)2, and ThCl4(THF)3.5 have been easily accessed from inexpensive, commercially available reagents under mild conditions and serve as excellent precursors to a variety of thorium(IV) halide, alkoxide, amide and organometallic compounds.
