Title: Homoleptic Imidophosphorane Stabilization of Tetravalent Cerium

Abstract

We present that the homoleptic complexes of cerium with the tris(piperidinyl)imidophosphorane ligand, [NP(pip) 3] -, present the most negative Ce 3+ /4+ redox couple known (<-2.64 V vs Fc/Fc +). This dramatic stabilization of the cerium tetravalent oxidation state [>4.0 V shift from the Ce 3+/4+ couple in 1 M HClO 4(aq)] is established through reactivity studies. Spectroscopic studies (UV–vis, electron paramagnetic resonance, and Ce L 3-edge X-ray absorption spectroscopy), in conjunction with density functional theory studies, reveal the dominant covalent metal–ligand interactions underlying the observed redox chemistry and the dependence of the redox potential on the binding of potassium in the inner coordination sphere.
