Carbamoylmethyl Phosphine Oxides as Chelating Agents
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
We have developed a series of tripodal ligands designed to bind lanthanide and actinide cations. These ligands contain carbamoylmethyl phosphine oxide (CMPO) groups, which are currently being used as part of the TRUEX process to remediate nuclear waste. A major focus of this study involves the exploration of novel ligand capping structures designed to link the CMPO units together to enhance metal binding. The synthetic approach to these ligands will be described as well as preliminary metal binding data.
