The appearance of [Cu-O-Cu]2+ species with increasing temperature is observed by in situ infrared spectra. [Cu-O-Cu]2+ is formed by dehydrated dimer composed of two Cu(OH)+. Low copper content sample needs higher temperature to form [Cu-O-Cu]2+ than high copper-conten ones. Cu2+ ions can be reduced to Cu+ by release of oxygen from [Cu-O-Cu]2+. In oxygen atmosphere, an equilibrium can be reached between the oxygen in [Cu-O-Cu]2+ and the oxygen in gas phase at high temperature. The property of extra-lattice oxygen is an important factor in determining the change of copper valence.
