A rare tetraalkyl–uranyl “ate” complex 1 was prepared and characterized for comparison with a UVI–hexaalkyl complex 2. Both 1 and 2 feature unprecedented high-frequency methylene 13C NMR shifts (see picture). That of complex 2 constitutes a new record for diamagnetic mononuclear complexes. Relativistic DFT calculations show that these extreme shifts are due to spin–orbit effects, a consequence of significant f-orbital involvement in the U[BOND]C bond.
