Actinide specialists crystallise uranium(VI) nitride

Uranium(V) can be oxidised simply to uranium(VI) using iodine

Chemists in the UK have succeeded in isolating stable crystals of the triply-bonded nitride of uranium in its +6 oxidation state – the first time that this has been done. This was thought to be improbable, if not impossible, given the inherent instability of the bond. A deeper understanding of uranium chemistry will aid scientists in their search for new and better ways to deal with nuclear waste.  More...
