Abstract

This review covers the activation of molecular pnictogens (group 15 elements) by homogeneous rare earth and actinide complexes. All examples of molecular pnictogen activation (dinitrogen, white phosphorus, yellow arsenic) by both rare earths and actinides, to date (2015), are discussed, focusing on synthetic methodology and the structure and bonding of the resulting complexes.
