During the last decade, the chemistry of d0/fn actinides has flourished reaching a high level of sophistication. Compared to the early or late transition-metal complexes and lanthanides, the actinides sometimes exhibit parallel but mostly complementary activities for similar organic processes, and sometimes even challenge the activities of the transition metals. A rapid increase in the numbers of reports in the Cambridge database also reflects their current importance. In view of the above, in this particular review we have provided an overview and updated information about the preparation and properties of the major classes of actinide complexes containing different cyclopentadienyl ligands and having the oxidation states (+3 and +4).
