Description

Cupric Sulfate Pentahydrate, also known as Copper(II) Sulfate Pentahydrate, Sulfate Salt Of Copper, Roman vitriol, and Blue vitriol, is the pentahydrate of copper(2+) sulfate having the chemical formula CuSO4-5H2Oor CuH10O9S. It appears as blue odorless crystals, lumps or powder and is moderately water and acid soluble at ambient conditions. When heated to decomposition, it emits toxic fumes of sulfur oxides. It can be prepared by dissolution of oxides, carbonates, or hydroxides in sulfuric acid solutions. It is also formed as a byproduct of copper electrolysis and etching process. Lab grade chemicals possess reasonable purity but do not comply with any official standard for quality or purity like the ACS Grade, the USP Grade, or the FCC Grade. The Lab Grade is also known as Laboratory Reagent (LR) and Chemically Pure (CP). Our Cupric Sulfate Powder, Pentahydrate, Lab Grade is recommended for educational institutes, research labs, and commercial applications.

Chemical Properties Of Copper(II) Sulfate

Information About Copper(II) Sulfate From Wikipedia 

Copper(II) sulfate, also known as copper sulphate, are the inorganic compounds with the chemical formula CuSO4(H2O)x, where x can range from 0 to 5. The pentahydrate (x = 5) is the most common form. Older names for this compound include blue vitriol, bluestone, vitriol of copper, and Roman vitriol.

The pentahydrate (CuSO4·5H2O), the most commonly encountered salt, is bright blue. It exothermically dissolves in water to give the aquo complex [Cu(H2O)6]2+, which has octahedral molecular geometry. The structure of the solid pentahydrate reveals a polymeric structure wherein copper is again octahedral but bound to four water ligands. The Cu(II)(H2O)4 centers are interconnected by sulfate anions to form chains. Anhydrous copper sulfate is a grey powder.
