A dicopper(I) complex supported by a novel asymmetric pentapyridine dinucleating ligand, consisting of tetradentate and tridentate metal-binding sites, has been synthesized and characterized. The dicopper(I) complex reacted with molecular oxygen at a low temperature to give an unprecedented μ-peroxo dicopper(II) complex presumably having μ-η12 binding mode, the spectroscopic features and the reactivity of which have been explored in detail.
