The decay of a long-lived intermediate formed in the photo-oxidation of acidic solutions of chlorocuprate(I) complexes was examined. The dependences of the decay rate on the components of this system (CuI, CuII, Cl- andH+) confirmed assumptions that dimeric or polymeric CuI-CuII chloro complexes are formed during the photo-oxidation. The quantum yield obtained indirectly as well as the estimate for the concentration of the intermediate were in accordance with results from previous experiments.
