New insights into the acid mediated disproportionation of pentavalent uranyl

The reaction of benzoic acid with the uranyl(v) complex [(UO 2Py5)(KI2Py2)] in pyridine leads to immediate disproportionation with formation of a hexanuclear U(iv) benzoate cluster, a bis-benzoate complex of uranyl(vi) and water. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
