Description

Inorganic compound, complex compound transitional metal copper, organic solvent tetramethylethylenediamine and inorganic nitric acid. Doesn`t form water hydrates.

Precursors

Reaction between tetramethylethylenediamine and copper nitrate

Chemical equation:

(H3CNCH3)2C4H8 + Cu(NO3)2 = [Cu((H3CNCH3)2C4H8)](NO3)2

For preparation of 100.00g of bis-thetramethylethylenediaminecopper(II) nitrate а 89.10g of copper nitrate hexahydrate and 43.48g of tetramethylethylenediamine is required.
Add to the flask with tetramethylethylenediamine a copper(II) nitrate solution with stirring. After reaction will stop, filter the solution and use it for crystal growing.

Notes

Solution is very dark and almost opaque, so control of growth of crystals is worsen.

Storage conditions

Store in its original form or under several layers of varnish at average humidity and room temperature. Do not store in matchboxes or cotton wool and do not heat.
