In the last two decades, several synthetic methodologies have been developed towards more sustainable and economical processes. One of these is mechanochemistry, consisting of solid-state reactions, either by manual grinding of solid reagents, using a mortar and pestle, or by using a ball mill. Mechanochemistry has the advantages of being an effective and cheap technique, for the synthesis of both organic and inorganic/coordination compounds  and for various other applications in Green Chemistry. Herein, we report the synthesis of new neutral and cationic Cu(II) complexes of the type [Cu(aryl-BIAN)X2] and [Cu(aryl-BIAN)2]X2 as potential laccase biomimetics. An X-ray structural diversity analysis will be presented comparing the results obtained by mechanochemistry with those reached by conventional solution-based methods, as well as their ability to oxidate phenols to quinones.
