Abstract

Hard-core uranium chemistry: The 3,5-dimethylpyrazolate anion can be activated by uranium(III) to form 4-ketimidopent-2-ene-2-imido (kipi3−) units, which are isoelectronic to acetylacetonate. Three related tetranuclear uranium cluster compounds were isolated (see picture), of which two are mixed valent.
