Copper(II) Chelating Agents

  • 418 Accesses

Abstract

The work focuses on current state, trends and further development directions in solvent extraction of copper. The extractants used for this purpose were reviewed and new pyridine-based proposals were described. Compounds having copper chelating properties are described in detail, with particular emphasis on oxime pyridine derivatives.
