Title: Neptunium and plutonium complexes with a sterically encumbered triamidoamine (TREN) scaffold

Here, the syntheses and characterization of isostructural neptunium(IV) and plutonium(IV) complexes [MIV(TRENTIPS)(Cl)] [An = Np, Pu; TRENTIPS = {N(CH2CH2NSiPri3)3}3] are reported, along with the demonstration that they are likely reduced to the corresponding neptunium(III) and plutonium(III) products [MIII(TRENTIPS)]; this chemistry provides new platforms from which to target a plethora of unprecedented molecular functionalities in transuranic chemistry and the neptunium(IV) molecule is the first structurally characterized neptunium(IV)–amide complex.
