Cupric (Ⅱ) ion transfer across the water/nitrobenzene interface facilitated by 2,2'-biqulnoline was investigated by cyclic voltammtry. Transfer process was controlled by diffusion. At [BQ]_(NB)>>[Cu~(2+)]_W, transfer ion was found to be 1:2 Cu~(2+)-biquinoline complex. Kinetics of complex action was described. Diffusion coefficient of Cu(BQ)~(2+)_2 in water phase was estimated as 3.8×10~(-5) cm~2/s and rate constant k of this complex action was determined as 2.6×10~(-4) s~(-1). At [Cu~(2+)]_W>>[BQ]_(NB), no transfer peaks were observed and 1:1 Cu~(2+)-biquinoline complex was formed.
