Abstract

Crystals of a hydrated Pu(iii) chloride, (C5H5NBr)2[PuCl3(H2O)5]·2Cl·2H2O, were grown via slow evaporation from acidic aqueous, high chloride media. X-ray diffraction data reveals the neutral [PuCl3(H2O)5] tecton is assembled via charge assisted hydrogen and halogen bonds donated by 4-bromopyridinium cations and a series of inter-tecton hydrogen bonds.
