Abstract : Thermogravimetric and differential thermal analysis of new reactions yielding copper(III) compounds are discussed. Potassium metal plus copper(II) oxide yields potassium cuprate(III) at ca 280C. Sodium and barium peroxide plus copper(II) oxide yield sodium and barium cuprate (III) respectively at ca 700C. The reaction parameters involved in these reactions are identified and discussed. Copper(II) oxide was observed to disproportionate in the presence of barium oxide at temperatures greater than 650C yielding copper(I) oxide and barium cuprate(III). (Author)
