Abstract: The organometallic tris-cyclopentadienide actinide(III) (AnCp3) complexes have been reported first about 50 years ago. Up to now however only the NpCp3 solid state structure has been studied. Here we report on the solid state structures of UCp3 and PuCp3 which are isostructural to their Np analogue. The structural models are supported by theoretical calculations. Analyses of bond lengths and angles indicate increased covalency in the bonding in the tris-cyclopentadienide actinide(iii) complexes (AnCp3) compared to their lanthanide homologues.
