Platinum(IV) Superoxo Complexes. Kiselev Yu.M., Pankratov D.A., Ezerskaya N.A., Kiseleva I.N., Shundrin L.A., Popovich M.P. //Russian Journal of Inorganic Chemistry. 1994. V.39. №8. P. 1278-1283
The products of reaction of platinum(IV) hydroxo complexes with ozone in alkaline solutions were studied using various physicochemical methods: electronic spectroscopy, electron spin resonance, and cyclic voltammetry. The arguments presented suggest that the blue solutions obtained contain superoxo Pt(IV) complexes.
One of the most efficient ways to stabilize higher oxidation states in the transition elements is complex formation in aqueous-alkaline media. In this case, hydroxyl ions offer advantages over other ligands and produce a stronger decrease in E° of a redox system than other, rather weakly polarizable ligands, which form complex ions in acid and neutral media. This circum stance is the one favoring stabilization of the highest oxidation states in neptunium, plutonium, americium(VII), and iron(VIII).
Emission Mössbauer Study Of "Cobalt Peroxide". Pankratov D.A., Portachenko T.A., Perfil'ev Yu.D. //Moscow University Chemistry Bulletin. 2008. V.49. №5. P.292-296.
The product interaction cooled alcohol solutions of the cobalt (II) chloride with hydrogen peroxide as described as CoO2 studied by emission Möessbauer spectroscopy. We show that dark green product is the cobalt (III) oxide.
