Abstract

Polarographic studies of Cu(ClO4)2 in aqueous dimethylsulphoxide (DMSO) mixtures have identified compositions in which Cu(I) is stable. The half-wave potentials EView the MathML source, of Cu(II)/Cu(I) and Cu(I)/Cu(Hg) decrease in DMSO-water mixtures and values of free energies of transfer, ΔGtr, of Cu(II) and Cu(I) from water to aqueous DMSO are reported. Similar measurement in aqueous acetone mixtures show that ΔGtr Cu(II) increases upon addition of acetone.
