Inorg Chem. 2016 Dec 29. doi: 10.1021/acs.inorgchem.6b02235. [Epub ahead of print]Herein, we report the synthesis and structural characterization of K8[(CO3)3Pu]2(μ-η2-η2-O2)2·12H2O. This is the second Pu-containing addition to the previously studied alkali-metal peroxocarbonate series M8[(CO3)3A]2(μ-η2-η2-O2)2·xH2O (M = alkali metal; A = Ce or Pu; x = 8, 10, 12, or 18), for which only the M = Na analogue has been previously reported when A = Pu. The previously reported crystal structure for Na8[(CO3)3Pu]2(μ-η2-η2-O2)2·12H2O is not isomorphous with its known Ce analogue. Read More
