Its chemical formula is CuSO4. CuSO4.5H2O is widely used in the form of large, blue or ultramerine triklinal crystals or light blue powder. This product, which is excellent in water, is highly soluble in methanol and glycerin. Basically it occurs by reaction of copper with concentrated sulfuric acid. Copper sulphate, which reacts with active metals such as zinc, leaves its copper as elemental, the other metal's sulphate is formed. It breaks down in solution at high temperatures and differences in the color of the product are observed.
Production and Reactions
Copper sulfate is obtained by the reaction of CuO and H2SO4.
CuO H2SO4? CuSO4 H2O
Cu H2SO4? CuSO4 H2O
Copper sulfate reacts with more reactive metals and forms sulfates and leaves out copper.
CuSO4 Zn? ZnSO4 Cu
CuSO4 Fe? FeSO4 Cu
3 CuSO4 2 Al? Al2 (SO4) 3 3 Cu
CuSO4 Lime? Bordeaux Mixture
Copper sulfate; industrially, it is obtained by treating the hot concentrated sulfuric acid with dilute sulfuric acid or oxides thereof with copper metal. Copper Sulphate Copper (I) Oxide production can be obtained in two stages according to the following reaction.
2CuSO4 Na2SO3 6NaCl H2O? 2Na2CuCl3 2Na2SO4 H2SO4
2Na2CuCl3 4NaOH H2SO4? Cu2O 6NaCl Na2SO4 3H2O
Copper sulphate is used as a fungicide in the agricultural sector. It plays an important role in Burgundy Slurry which is prepared for use in plants (Fruit Trees). It is a successful fertilizer solution in meeting the copper needs of plants. Copper is one of the indispensable elements for the synthesis of chlorophyll (green color pigment). Chlorophyll synthesis plays a decisive role in the plant's photosynthesis efficiency and ultimately yield. Copper also provides the formation of proteins and vitamins in the plant. If the deficiency in the cereals is severe and persistent, spike does not occur.
Foot baths; These are pools filled with medicated (bluestone 5% solution) in which the animals are carried through or kept within a period of time to protect the foot and nail health, to increase the durability of the nail and to treat foot diseases.
The electrolysis method is used in the production of copper powder electrolytic powder. Electrolytically copper sulfate and sulfuric acid are used. Anode copper cathode is antimony lead. In general, copper powders are produced by electrolysis method.
Copper sulfate can be used as a mordant in vegetable dyeing. Usually emphasizes the green hues of specific paints.
Copper sulphate is used as an emetic in this sector. This use is considered very toxic for nature.
Copper sulfate is used in schools to ensure that crystals become visible in copper plating experiments. It is also suitable for treating aquarium fish for parasitic infections with the solution form and also for removing snails from aquariums.
