An alcoholysis route to a Cu16 cluster, and the influence of the alcohol

Author affiliations

Abstract

A systematic investigation of the alcoholysis of copper(II) pivalate (piv) solutions has led to a series of Cu2, Cu6, and Cu16 products, depending on the alcohol used as solvent. When PrnOH or BunOH was employed, the products were the clusters [Cu16O4(OH)4(OR)8(piv)12(ROH)] (R = Prn, Bun) that are almost isostructural. The Cu16 clusters are antiferromagnetically-coupled with an S = 0 spin ground state.
