Abstract

Presented in this chapter is the synthetic and structural chemistry of lanthanide oxide/hydroxide complexes. The development of synthetic methodologies, salient structural features, diversity of ancillary ligands that support the lanthanide-oxo/hydroxo core motifs, and niche applications in chemistry and materials science of this unique class of lanthanide complexes are detailed.
