Abstract [en]

The water exchange mechanism of the uranyl(VI) aquo ion in the luminescent state, (3)Delta(g) in the spin-orbit free nomenclature, has been investigated using quantum chemical methods and compared to the corresponding reaction in the electronic ground state. The reaction mechanism was studied by calculation of the enthalpy of reaction of the A- and D-intermediates relative to the reactant, using a penta-aquo ion model with one additional water molecule in the second hydration sphere. The reaction barriers around the intermediates are low, and they are therefore a good approximation for the activation enthalpy. The energy of the D-intermediate is significantly larger than that of the A-intermediate both in the luminescent and in the ground states, suggesting that the water exchange is the same in both states. This suggestion is supported by the experimental rate constants for luminescence decay and water exchange in the electronic ground state that are 0.5 x 10(6) s(-1) and 1.3 x 10(6) s(-1), respectively.
