Revealing the Reduction Process of Cu(II) by Sodium Bis(trimethylsilyl)amide

Abstract

Mechanistic investigation of copper-catalysed transformations has been an important and fundamental task. Herein, we report that the sodium bis(trimethylsilyl)amide could reduce Cu(II) to Cu(I) species serving as an electron donor via XAS and EPR spectroscopy. XAS spectroscopy demonstrates that the newly formed Cu(I) species is Cu[N(TMS)2]2Na ate complex, in which the nitrogen atoms coordinate with copper linearly.
