The Cu(acac)2 complex was investigated by X-ray emission and XANES spectroscopy using synchrotron radiation. Structural data for the complex were obtained in chloroform solution and C2F matrix. The experimental spectra and their fitting on a single scale of binding energies point to possible relaxation effects. As shown by model quantum-chemical calculations, the structure and energy position of the LUMOs constructed from the vacant metal 4p, 5p AOs strongly depends on the nature of the nearest environment.
