The Synthesis and Characterization of Cu(I) Phenanthroline Polymer Precursor Complexes involving Substituted Phosphines
This paper explores the synthesis of Cu(dmp)(PTA)2BF4 (dmp = 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline; PTA = 1,3,5-Triaza-7-phosphaadamantane). It is the precursor molecule to Cu(dmpa)(PTA)2BF4 (dmpa = 5-acrylate-2,9-dimethyl-1, ...
