Characterization of a Dinuclear Copper(II) Complex and Its Fleeting Mixed-Valent Copper(II)/Copper(III) Counterpart

Abstract : The synthesis of a dinuclear copper(II) complex, supported by a 1,3-diamino-2-propanol-based tetraamide ligand, is reported. Structural properties in the solid state and in solution, by means of XRD analysis and NMR spectroscopy, respectively, provide evidence of a highly flexible complex that can display several conformations, leading to the image of the wings of a butterfly. The complex was fully characterized and the redox properties were investigated. Room-temperature spectro-electrochemistry was used to monitor the formation of a metastable mono-oxidized product that displayed an absorption band centered at λ=463 nm. EPR investigation of the low-temperature, chemically generated, mono-oxidized product reveals the presence of an intermediate described as a mixed-valent CuIICuIII species, which is a model of the possible highly oxidizing intermediate in particulate methane monooxygenase.
