New Cu(I)-Ethylene Complexes Based on Tridentate Imine Ligands

TOC entry

A manuscript has just been published in Inorganic Chemistry describing our work on new Cu(I)-ethylene Complexes based on tridentate imine ligands.  These complexes have promise for the separation of ethylene from other olefins and alkanes- a separation currently achieved industrially by energy intensive cryogenic distillation.
