Acetate ions can function as both monodentate and bidentate ligands but the crystallochemical factors which favour one of these two coordinations are not known. The title compound is a product obtained while attempting to synthesise tris(cyclopentadienyl)uranium acetate. Within the large series of cyclopentadienyl complexes of uranium(IV), the title compound is the first observed where the uranium(IV) exhibits a coordination number of seven. The bridging between U atoms occurs through acetate and oxide O atoms. The cyclopentadienyl ligands occupy the apical coordination sites of the bipyramids. The characterisation and structure analysis of this compound by single crystal X-ray diffraction are reported.
