The photochemistry of copper(II)-amino acid complexes (amino acid = glutamic acid, β-alanine, or glycine) has been investigated by continuous and flash photolysis. The charge-transfer irradiations induce the oxidation of the ligand and the reduction of copper(II) to copper(I). Transients observed in flash photolysis have been assigned as copper-alkyl complexes. Moreover, other copper-alkyl species are produced when carbon-centered radicals react with excess of copper(II) complexes. The photochemical properties of the copper(II)-amino acid complexes are discussed in terms of population of charge transfer to copper excited states.
