Based on unique 5-fold equatorial coordination of UO$$_{2}$$$$^{2+}$$, water-compatible pentadentate planar ligands, H$$_{2}$$saldian and its derivatives, were designed as strong and selective capture of UO$$_{2}$$$$^{2+}$$ in seawater. In the simulated seawater condition (0.5 M NaCl + 2.3 mM HCO$$_{3}$$$$^{-}$$/CO$$_{3}$$$$^{2-}$$, pH 8), saldian$$^{2-}$$ shows the strongest complexation with UO$$_{2}$$$$^{2+}$$ to form UO$$_{2}$$(saldian) (log$$beta$$$$_{11}$$ = 28.05 $$pm$$ 0.07), which is more than 10 order of magnitude greater than amidoxime-based or -inspired ligand systems most commonly employed for U capture from seawater. Good selectivity for UO$$_{2}$$$$^{2+}$$ from other metal ions coexisting in seawater was also demonstrated.
