Oxidative dissolution of copper and zinc metal in carbon dioxide with tert-butyl peracetate and a beta-diketone chelating agent.


A series of beta-diketone ligands, R(1)COCH(2)COR(2) [tmhdH (R(1) = R(2) = C(CH(3))(3)); tfacH (R(1) = CF(3); R(2) = CH(3)); hfacH (R(1) = R(2) = CF(3))], in combination with tert-butyl peracetate (t-BuPA), have been investigated as etchant solutions for dissolution of copper metal into carbon dioxide solvent. Copper removal in CO(2) increases in the order… (More)
