To obtain mechanistic insights into the inherent reactivity patterns for copper(I)-O2 adducts, a new cupric-superoxo complex [(DMM-tmpa)Cu(II)(O2(•-))](+) (2) [DMM-tmpa = tris((4-methoxy-3,5-dimethylpyridin-2-yl)methyl)amine] has been synthesized and studied in phenol oxidation-oxygenation reactions. Compound 2 is characterized by UV-vis, resonance Raman,(More)
Here we describe a new approach for the generation of heme-peroxo-Cu compounds, using a "naked" complex synthon, [(F8)Fe(III)-(O2(2-))-Cu(II)(MeTHF)3](+) (MeTHF = 2-methyltetrahydrofuran; F8 = tetrakis(2,6-difluorophenyl)porphyrinate). Addition of varying ligands (L) for Cu allows the generation and spectroscopic characterization of a family of high- and(More)
