Abstract

A simple coordination complex of uranium(III), a uranium tris(amide), can selectively couple gaseous CO to the linear ynediolate [OCCO]2- dianion, at room temperature and pressure, regardless of the reagent stoichiometry. This product exhibits further reactivity upon warming in the form of the addition of a C-H bond of a methyl group across the C≡C triple bond, this second carbon-carbon bond forming reaction generating a functionalised enediolate dianion.
