Title: Similar ligand–metal bonding for transition metals and actinides? 5f 1 U(C 7 H 7 ) 2 versus 3d n metallocenes

A computational analysis of the electronic structure, bonding and magnetic properties in the 5f 1 U(C 7 H 7 ) 2 complex vs. 3d metallocenes is performed. Notably, it is shown that the proton hyperfine coupling constant in U(C 7 H 7 ) 2 is the same in sign and magnitude to that of the 3d 7 cobaltocene, but the two systems do not share a similar covalent metal–ligand bonding.
