The binuclear copper complex [Cu(DQPD)]2 (where DQPD = deprotonated N2,N6-di(quinolin-8-yl)pyridine-2,6-dicarboxamide (DQPDH2)) was synthesised and characterised by various spectroscopic as well as electrochemical techniques. The binuclear copper complex was converted into a mononuclear one by the addition of 2 equivalents of pTsOH into [Cu(DQPD)]2. The… CONTINUE READING
