Dissecting the cation–cation interaction between two uranyl units

Abstract

We present a state-of-the-art computational study of the uranyl(VI) and uranyl(V) cation–cation interactions (dications) in aqueous solution. Reliable electronic structures of two interacting uranyl(VI) and uranyl(V) subunits as well as those of the uranyl(VI) and uranyl(V) clusters are presented for the first time. Our theoretical study elucidates the impact of cation–cation interactions on changes in the molecular structure as well as changes in vibrational and UV-Vis spectra of the bare uranyl(VI) and uranyl(V) moieties for different total spin-states and total charges of the dications.
