Mechanism of Electroless Copper Deposition from [CuIIEDTA]2– Complexes Using Aldehyde-Based Reductants
Journal of Physical Chemistry C, pp. 24789-24793, 2016.
In this article, we present a mechanism for electroless copper deposition from alkaline solutions containing [CuIIEDTA]2–(aq) and hydrolyzed aldehydes. The mechanism is based on quantum chemical calculations of the activation energies and reversible electron-transfer potentials. Low-coordinated, electroless-deposited surface Cu atoms are ...More
