Abstract

Reaction of O2 with a binuclear CuI species derived from a new meta-xylyl-binucleating ligand, NNN′N′-tetrakis[2-(2- pyridyl)ethyl]-α,α′-diamino-m-xylene [m-xyl(py)], has resulted in hydroxylation of the ligand to produce the binuclear CuII complex (1); the X-ray crystal structure of the dication of (1) shows two pentaco-ordinate CuII ions bridged by the phenoxy-group of the ligand and a methoxy-group.
