The Kinetics of the Oxidation and Chelation of Cu(0) and Cu2O in Hexanes or Condensed Carbon Dioxide by t-Butylperacetate and 1,1,1-Trifluoro-2,4-pentanedione

The oxidation and removal of copper(0) foil and copper(I) oxide (Cu2O) powder were studied in hexanes or condensed CO2 (at a constant density of 0.8 g/cm3) using excess tert-butyl peracetate (t-BuPA), as the oxidant, and excess 1,1,1-trifluoro-2,4-pentanedione (tfacH), as the chelating agent from 19...
