Résumé : The electrochemical behaviour of Cu(II) ions has been investigated in acidic aqueous solutions in the presence ofdicyanamide (dca), an anion frequently used as bridging agent in coordination polymers. The cyclic voltammogramsrecorded at a gold electrode have revealed two consecutive one electron transfer processes indicatingthat Cu(I) is stabilized by the dicyanamide anion at the electrode surface. The formation of an insoluble film afterreduction of Cu(II) to Cu(I) was evidenced by EQCM measurements and imaged by scanning electron microscopy.XRD and infrared reflection spectroscopy data have confirmed the formation of a Cu(I)-dca film.
