Abstract

The spectrum of Cu-H+(aq), formed via Cu+ + H → Cu-H+(aq) in aqueous solutions, is reported. In neutral solutions it decomposes via Cu-H+(aq) + H2O → Cu2+(aq) + H2 + OH(aq) with a rate of 4 × 103 s−1. The properties of Cu-H+(aq) are discussed and compared with those of similar CuII-R compounds.
