The title thiosemicarbazidatodioxouranium(VI) compound was synthesized and characterized by FT-IR, NMR and UV-vis spectroscopies. Solid state structure of the compound was confirmed by X-ray crystallography. Besides, the molecular geometry, vibrational frequencies and gauge-independent atomic orbital (GIAO) H-1 and C-13 NMR chemical shift values of the compound in the ground state have been calculated using the density functional theory (DFT/B3LYP) method with the 6-311++G(d,p) basis set for the C, H, Cl, N, O, S atoms and SDD pseudo-potential for the U atom, and compared with the experimental data. Using the TD-DFT method, electronic absorption spectra of the compound have been predicted at same level. As a result, a good agreement is obtained between the experimental and theoretical ones.
