Reaction of the 1,3-phenylenediacetatodicopper(I) pyridine complex with dioxygen, hydrogen peroxide and carbon monoxide

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The reactions of 1,3-phenylenediacetatodicopper(I) pyridine, prepared from 1,3-phenylenediacetatocopper(II) by metallic copper, were studied. On oxygenation, a copper-dioxygen complex was formed, whereas carbon monoxide yielded an unstable carbonyl complex. The complexes were characterised by spectroscopic measurements.
