Cupric acetylacetonate Chemical Properties,Usage,Production
Copper(II) acetylacetonate catalyzes coupling and carbene transfer reactions. Metal acetylacetonates are used as catalysts for polymerization of olefins and transesterification. They are used as PVC stabilizer. They are used as curing agents for epoxy resins, acrylic adhesives and silicone rubbers. They are used as solvents, lubricant additives, paint drier, and pesticides. They are used in glass coatings.
Crystalline powder, slightly soluble in water and
alcohol, soluble in chloroform, mp >230C. Resistant to hydrolysis. A chelating nonionizing compound.
Poison by intravenous andintraperitoneal routes. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke andfumes of Cu.
