Geometric effects on OO bond scission of copper(II)-alkylperoxide complexes.


Copper(II) complexes supported by N3-tridentate ligands, consisting of a rigid cyclic diamine (8-membered cyclic-diamine; L8 or 7-membered cyclic-diamine; L7) and a 2-(2-pyridyl)ethyl (-CH2CH2Py) group, were synthesized and structurally characterized. Reaction of the copper(II) complexes and cumene hydroperoxide (CmOOH) in the presence of triethylamine in… (More)
