Reaction of the organoactinide complexes (C5Me5)2AnMe2 (An = Th, U) with catecholborane yields an inclusion complex where the actinide is encapsulated inside a 15-membered, hexaoxo, trianionic macrocycle built from alternating catechol and catecholborate fragments. In the presence of LiOH, a dimer of two encapsulated actinide macrocycles is formed. The X-ray molecular structure for all the complexes is presented.
