    • Abstract

       

      Activation of dioxygen on dicopper(I) centres was systematically investigated using a group of open-chain and a macrocyclicm-xylyl-based dinucleating ligand from a bioinorganic viewpoint. Even though intermediate peroxodicopper(II) species was not detected (even at −80°C for the open-chain system), the putative intermediate reacted with C–H groups in ligands giving oxygenated products (C–OH groups). Absorption, spectroscopic and magnetic properties of the final dicopper(II) complexes have been investigated.
