Cupric Sulfide, also known as Copper(II) Sulphide, Thioxocopper, Copper Monosulfide, Copper (2+) Sulfide, Copper Blue, Oil Blue, and Horace Vernet's Blue, has the chemical formula CuS. It appears as air and moisture-sensitive black powder or lumps with no odor. It is insoluble in Water, Alcohol, and Alkaline solutions at ambient conditions. When heated to decomposition, it emits toxic fumes of Sulfur Dioxide, Hydrogen Sulfide, and Metal Oxide. It is commonly prepared by passing Hydrogen Sulfide gas into a solution of Copper salt. Chemicals in the Reagent Grade category have high purity and are best suited for analytical purposes. They're useful in research investigations as they produce consistent, trustworthy, and repeatable findings.
