Abstract

The reaction of M[η5-(CH3)5C5] 2(CH3)2 and M[η5-(CH3)5C5] 2(CD3)2 compounds, M = Th and ∪, with partially dehydroxylated and nearly completely dehydroxylated alumina yields methane via protolysis by surface OH, ring H atom abstraction, and elimination within the M(CH3)2 groups. The latter pathway is proposed on the basis of chemical evidence to result in alumina-stabilized actinide alkylidenes.
