Lewis acid capping of a uranium(v) nitride via a uranium(iii) azide molecular square

Author affiliations

Abstract

Reaction of (CpiPr4)2UI with NaN3 resulted in formation of tetrameric uranium(III) azide-bridged ‘molecular square’ [(CpiPr4)2U(μ-η11-N3)]4 (1). Addition of B(C6F5)3 to 1 induced loss of N2 at room temperature, yielding the uranium(V) borane-capped nitrido (CpiPr4)2U(μ-N)B(C6F5)3 (2).
