Uranium-mediated activation of small molecules

Polly L. Arnold

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Molecular complexes of uranium are capable of activating a range of industrially and economically important small molecules such as CO, CO2, and N2; new and often unexpected reactions provide insight into an element that needs to be well-understood if future clean-energy solutions are to involve nuclear power.
