Uranium (V), which should have one electron in the 5f level, was prepared as the pentafluoride and as a dopant in single crystals of sodium antimony hexafluoride. Both of these compounds exhibit electron paramagnetic resonance. The average g value of uranium pentafluoride is -0.7341. The single crystals of sodium antimony hexafluoride doped with uranium (V) exhibit a splitting of the absorption spectra, which is a function of angular rotation perpendicular to the magnetic field. The average g value for the doped crystals is -0.7316.
