Title: Synthesis, Structure, and Vibrational Properties of [Ph 4P] 2NpO 2Cl 4 and [Ph 4P] 2PuO 2Cl 4 Complexes

In this paper, the synthesis, structure, and vibrational properties are presented for an isostructural series of Np(VI) and Pu(VI) complexes of the form [Ph 4P] 2AnO 2Cl 4, where An = Np(VI) or Pu(VI). The reported complexes are readily synthesized in ambient laboratory conditions, and their molecular structures were determined using single crystal X-ray diffraction. Their vibrational spectra were studied using a combination of Raman and FT-IR vibrational spectroscopies. Analysis of the vibrational spectra and force constants highlight the periodic properties associated with the actinide contraction and filling of the 5f electronic shells. Finally and additionally, we have assessed the utility of these complexes as conveniently synthesized starting materials for non-aqueous synthesis of transuranium molecules and materials.
