Title: A series of dithiocarbamates for americium, curium, and californium

Here, characterizing how actinide properties change across the f-element series is critical for improving predictive capabilities and solving many nuclear problems facing our society. Unfortunately, it is difficult to make direct comparisons across the 5f-element series because so little is known about trans-plutonium elements. Results described herein help to address this issue through isolation of An(S 2CNEt 2) 3(N 2C 12H 8) (Am, Cm, and Cf). These findings included the first single crystal X-ray diffraction measurements of Cm–S (mean of 2.86 ± 0.04 Å) and Cf–S (mean of 2.84 ± 0.04 Å) bond distances. Furthermore, they highlight the potential of An(S 2CNEt 2) 3(N 2C 12H 8) for providing a test bed for comparative analyses of actinide versus lanthanide bonding interactions.
