Abstract

When immersed in 1-methylimidazole, the metals copper, zinc, and cobalt will react with ambient dioxygen and carbon dioxide to yield the blue-green molecular complex Cu(CO3)(MeIm)3 and the pair of isostructural polymeric complexes Zn(CO3)(MeIm)2·2H2O and Co(CO3)(MeIm)2·2H2O, respectively.
