Copper Acetate Separation Equation

Basic Copper Sulphate is an important raw material for preparing other copper-containing compounds.

  Basic Copper Sulphate is an important raw material for preparing other copper-containing compounds. Widely used in electroplating process, as a pigment, as an algae removal agent for water purification in storage tanks. Used in medicine as astringent, antiseptic and emetic. The hydrate of copper sulfate CuSO4?5H2O is commonly known as bile alum or blue alum. It is a blue crystal, triclinic system. It is mixed with lime and water in the ratio of CuSO4?5H2O:CaO:H2O=1:1:100 in agriculture. Bordeaux mixture, used as pesticides and fungicides in orchards and crops. Industrial copper sulfate contains insoluble impurities and soluble impurities. Among the soluble impurities, Fe3+ and Fe2+ have a greater impact on the quality of copper sulfate, and the content is also high.
 
   This experiment uses precipitation separation method and recrystallization method to purify copper sulfate.
 
   Precipitation separation method: It is an experimental method that uses the difference of the solubility of two or more insoluble salts to achieve the separation purpose by adding a precipitation agent to make one of the ions completely precipitated while the other ions have not yet begun to precipitate.
 
   recrystallization method: It is an experimental method that uses the different solubility properties of different substances in the same solvent to crystallize substances whose solubility changes greatly with temperature through basic operations such as heating, evaporation and concentration, and cooling crystallization to achieve the purpose of separation and purification.
 
  Copper Acetate's equation for separation reaction:
 
   2FeSO4+H2O2+H2SO4=Fe2(SO4)3+2H2O
 
  Fe3++3H2O=Fe(OH)3↓+3H+(pH=4)
