Structure of the {U$$_{13}$$} polyoxo cluster U$$_{13}$$O$$_{8}$$Cl$$_{x}$$(MeO)$$_{38-x}$$ (x = 2.3, MeO = methoxide)

Fichter, S.*; Radoske, T.*; Ikeda, Atsushi  

A new type of polyoxo cluster complex that contains thirteen uranium atoms, {U$$_{13}$$}, was synthesised and characterised as [U$$_{13}$$($$mu$$$$_{4}$$-O$$_{rm oxo}$$)$$_{8}$$($$mu$$$$_{4}$$-O$$_{rm MeO}$$)$$_{2}$$($$mu$$$$_{2}$$-O$$_{rm MeO}$$)$$_{24}$$Cl$$_{x}$$(O$$_{rm MeO}$$)$$_{12-x}$$] (x = 2.3, MeO = methoxide) (I). The complex crystallises from methanol containing tetravalent uranium (U$$^{rm IV}$$) with a basic organic ligand. The characterised {U$$_{13}$$} polyoxo cluster complex possesses a single cubic uranium polyhedron at the centre of the cluster core. The observed shortening of U-O bonds, together with BVS calculations and the overall negative charge (2-) of (I), suggests that the central uranium atom in (I), that forms the single cubic polyhedron, is presumably oxidised to the pentavalent state (U$$^{rm V}$$) from the original tetravalent state (U$$^{rm IV}$$). Complex I is, hence, the first example of a polyoxo cluster possessing a single cubic coordination polyhedron of U$$^{rm V}$$.
