Mining the reactivity of uranium: Current highlights in the uranium-mediated reactions of CO include reductive coupling, CO homologation, and, most recently, the remarkable hydrogenation of CO to methanolate by the U
mixed-sandwich complex 1. The theoretical catalytic cycle proceeds through the hydrogenation of
CO to give the methanolate complex 2, which upon treatment with Me
SiOTf, releases Me
and the uranium triflate 3, which in turn can be reduced with K/Hg to regenerate 1 (see scheme). Copyright © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
