Abstract

This chapter discusses the many [Ln(OR)3] structural arrangements. It is important to note that this chapter discusses only a few of the many homoleptic, homocationic [Ln(OR)3] species and none of the heteroleptic or heterocationic species that are available. The existing work on [Ln(OR)x] should lay the groundwork for an understanding of the exciting and diverse structure types that are possible with this family of compounds.
