Highlights in Uranium Coordination Chemistry

Chapter

Abstract

The coordination chemistry of uranium has become an increasingly popular topic in the last 15 years.Much of the reason for this interest has come from the development of easy to synthesize, stable startingmaterials. These materials allowed an entry point for the exploration of uranium with any ligand imaginable.This chapter covers the most significant developments in the coordination chemistry of non-cyclopentadienyluranium complexes and their reactivity with small molecules.
