Structural studies of plutonium coordination complexes are rare. In fact, at the end of the twentieth century, the Cambridge Data Base, which lists structurally characterized molecules that contain at least one carbon and one hydrogen, shows 16 plutonium complexes, all of which were characterized by powder diffraction. This absence of structural data severely limits the prediction of possible reaction products and reduces the accuracy of computer modeling, which relies heavily on such data. We hope to build a database of plutonium complexes in which one can find typical plutonium bond distances and coordination geometries.
