The Affinity of Cupric(Pyridine) Complex Towards a Fifth Ligand
The further coordination of copper pyridine complexes with other ligands in methanol has been studied by investigation the absorption spectra and by studying equilibria of cupric nitrate and pyridine in methanol in the presence of solid Cu(Pyr)4(NO3)2. If addition of a ligand X to such a system leads to the formation of a new complex, it will do so at the expense of the solid phase. The formation constant of the new complex may then be estimated from the change in the total quantity of dissolved copper as a function of the amount of X added to the system.
