Identification
Name:Cu(+)
Description:The copper (I) ion is typically found in Zn-Cu superoxide dismutase. In the SOD-catalysed dismutation of superoxide the oxidation state of copper oscillates between 1 and 2. Most soluble copper ions are Cu2+ and most Cu+ ions will disproportionate to Cu2+ ions. The disproportionation reaction only occurs with simple copper(I) ions in solution.
