Synthesis of mesitylcopper

Synthesized mesitylcopper by following the procedure. 

(1) High quality anhydrous solvents (THF/dioxane/Toluene) and good argon or nitrogen protection for all the operations are key to get high yield and quality product, since the mesitylcoppor solution is highly sensitive.
