Uranium, one of typical actinide elements, has strong polarizing property. Using 5f orbitals for bonding with ligands, uranium(III) compounds have some unique reactivities including: migratory insertion, σ-bond metathesis and redox activity etc., which provides researchers with good opportunities to obtain organic uranium complexes or materials with unique structures and reactional properties. In the last 20 years, it has been found that trivalent uranium organic complexes exhibit a wide variety of activation towards small molecules. Due to the significant research and potential industrial value, this field has been well developed in recent years. Some research results for small molecules (such as N2, CO, CO2) activation promoted by trivalent uranium complexes were summarized in the paper.

Key words: actinide chemistry, trivalent uranium complex, coordination chemistry, activation of N2, CO and CO2
