Title: Structure and properties of [(4,6- tBu 2C 6H 2O) 2Se] 2An(THF) 2, An = U, Np, and their reaction with p-benzoquinone

Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of U(iv) and Np(iv) selenium bis(phenolate) complexes are reported. The reaction of two equivalents of the U(iv) complex with p-benzoquinone results in the formation of a U(v)-U(v) species with a bridging reduced quinone. Here, this represents a rare example of high-valent uranium chemistry as well as a rare example of a neptunium aryloxide complex.
