Copper(I) chemistry is limited by a reaction which occurs involving simple copper(I) ions in solution. This is a good example of - a reaction in which something oxidises and reduces itself.
Disclaimer: The following is a summary of the procedure Iused to make copper aspirinate complex (not compound). I offer it here forinformational purposes to show that copper aspirinate can be made with commonly availablematerials and equipment. A similar procedure is typically done by second-year collegechemistry students as a laboratory exercise in a setting supervised by a professionalinstructor. I do NOT recommend that people do this at home. Some aspects of theseprocedures are hazardous, and the typical home kitchen simply has too many distractionsand interruptions for a student to carry out these procedures safely. Your wife (or mom)will also be furious if you get copper sulfate stains on her kitchen counter!
