Abstract

The role of copper ions in the copper-catalyzed chemical reactions is discussed. It is pointed out that copper ions can induce oscillatory behavior in many systems for the following reasons: (1) Copper cations can exist in three oxidation states (+1, +2 and +3); (2) Copper cations can form precipitates and stable complexes with a large number of reactants and intermediates; (3) Copper ions can participate in both oxidation and reduction processes, due to the surprisingly large range of redox potentials exhibited by the Cu2+/Cu+ and Cu3+/Cu2+ couples (known redox potentials span from 0.1 to 1.8 V, depending on the counter-ion or ligand present).
