The synthesis of new 2,5-dihydroxy-1,4-benzoquinone (H2DHBQ) and chloranilic acid (H2CA) complexes cis-[Mo2O5L2]2− (L = DHBQ, CA), [W2O5(DHBQ)2]2−, [WO2(CA)2]2−, trans-[UO2(DHBQ)]·H2O, and trans-[UO2(CA)2]2− is described. Raman, i.r., 1H and 13C n.m.r spectra of the ligands and their complexes are reported and their structures discussed.
