    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The polymeric complex {[UO2Py5][KI2Py2]}n was isolated by controlled oxidation of uranium tris-iodide in pyridine and structurally characterized using X-ray diffraction. The described synthetic method allows us to isolate a stable derivative of the elusive pentavalent UO2+ species providing a potential starting material for the development of anhydrous UO2+ coordination chemistry.
