Cluster Control in Oligouranyl Complexes of p-t-Butylcalixarene
MetadataShow full item record
Formation of uranyl ion complexes of p-t-butylcalixarene by reaction of the calixarene with [UO2(dmso)5]2+ in the presence of various bases leads to the crystallisation of solids with interestingly different stoichiometry, involving both di- and tri-uranate oligomers bound to the calixarene in anionic species. In all, the calixarene hexa-anion is present in a virtually identical conformation, suggesting that conformational preferences of the ligand must be a major factor controlling the form of the bound oxo-metal complex. Hydrogen bonding to the anions does not appear to be prominent even in the presence of protonated amines and this may explain the formation of some remarkable cation/solvent/simple anion clusters found within the lattices.
