Abstract

Dinuclear alkynyl copper(I) complexes exhibit superior reactivity toward organic azides compared to their monomeric analogues. DFT studies indicate that the second copper center facilitates the formation of the cupracycle in the rate-determining step and stabilizes the metallacycle intermediate itself. These findings support the experimentally determined rate law and shed light on the origin of high reactivity of the in situ generated copper acetylides.
