Abstract

Uranium tris(cyclopentadienyl)chlorine (UCp(3)Cl) exhibits two phase transitions between 300 K and 5 K. This paper discusses the crystallographic structures which show a transition at 245 K from the centrosymmetric space group P2(1)/n at 300 K to the non-centrosymmetric space group Pn observed at 120 K; below 78 K the structure becomes triclinic.
