How does Cu(II) convert into Cu(I)? An unexpected ring-mediated single-electron reduction.

Abstract

Cu(x)O (x=1,2) nanomaterials with tailored composition and properties-a hot topic in sustainable technologies-may be fabricated from molecular sources through bottom-up processes that involve unexpected changes in the metal oxidation state and open intriguing challenges on the copper redox chemistry. How copper(II) sources may lead to copper(I) species in… (More)
