A new neptunium(VI) complex [(NpO2)(CrO4)(H2O)] ⋅ 4H2O (I) was synthesized, its crystal structure was determined, and the IR and near-IR absorption spectra were measured. The unit
cell parameters are: a = 8.634(4) Å, b = 11.119(4) Å, c = 9.410(3) Å, β = 92.40(3)°, space group P21/c, Z = 4, V = 902.6(6) Å3, R = 0.048, wR(F
2) = 0.054. The crystal structure of the compound is composed of the [(NpO2)(CrO4)(H2O)]
layers and the crystal water molecules located between the layers. The coordination polyhedron of neptunium is a pentagonal
bipyramid whose equatorial plane is formed by the oxygen atoms of two bridging water molecules and three chromate ions. The
Np(VI) complexation with the chromate ions in an aqueous solution at μ = 1 was studied by spectrophotometry. The stability
constants for 1 : 1 and 1 : 2 complexes were calculated, logβ1 = 3.19(2), logβ2 = 3.93(2), respectively.

    ABSTRACT: This work was designed for further investigations of coordination compounds of penta- and hexavalent actinides with tetrahedral XO42−-anions. Although a high similarity in the structure and properties of AnO22+ compounds with XO42−-anions (where An=Np, Pu) was expected, our data on the behaviour of AnO22+ compounds in aqueous solutions pointed to marked differences depending on the nature of both actinides and a central X-atom in ligands.

    ABSTRACT: The study of the H+ −CrO42− system in 3.0 M KCl as ionic medium at 25°C by means of emf (glass electrode) and direct calorimetric measurements, in the total CrVI concentration (B), average number of H+ bounds per central group CrO42− (Z), and pH ranges: 25 ⩽ B ⩽ 100 mM, 0 ⩽ Z ⩽ 1.16 and 1 ⩽ pH ⩽ 8, respectively, indicates the formation of the following complexes Hp(CrO4)q(p−2q), stability constants (logβpq(± 3σ)) and partial molar enthalpies (ΔHpq(±3 σ) kcal.mol−1): HCrO4−, 5.888(4), −0.6(1); Cr2O72−, 13.900(3), −5.7(1); H2CrO4, 7.004(7), 1.8(2) and HCr2O7−, 15.007(5), −5.0(1), respectively, according to the general reaction: pH+ + qCrO42− ⇄ Hp(CrO4)q(p−2q). The results previously obtained by Raman spectroscopy for this system are better adjusted when the HCrO4− species is included. The energies and optimized structures from ab initio calculations for the CrO42−, HCrO4−, Cr2O72−, H2CrO4 and HCr2O7− species have also been obtained. For the HCrO4− species the values of bond lengths and angles theoretically calculated are in good agreement with the experimental data of the anion in the crystal structure of the compound (PPh4)[CrVIO3(OH)]. Finally, correlations between thermodynamic experimental and structural theoretical parameters are discussed.
