CO2 fixation by dicopper(ii) complexes in hypodentate framework of N8O2

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new ligand with N8O2 donors containing three potential metal-binding sites (H2L) and its tricopper(II) complex 1 are synthesized. The tricopper species is found to be formed from a hypodentate dicopper(II) complex 2 in basic solutions. Complex 2 may be isolated from the reaction of H2L with a copper source under acidic conditions. Complex 2 can undergo CO2-abstraction to yield an octacopper(II) complex 3. The single crystal structures of complexes 2 and 3 are characterized by X-ray crystallography.
