COPPER SULFATE PENTAHYDRATE
Copper (II) sulfate, also known as cupric sulfate or copper sulphate, is the inorganic compound with the chemical formulaCuSO4.
This salt exists as a series of compounds that differ in their degree of hydration.
The anhydrous form is a pale green or gray-white powder, whereas the pentahydrate (CuSO4·5H2O), the most commonly encountered salt, is bright blue. Copper (II) sulfate exothermically dissolves in water to give the aquo complex [Cu(H2O)6]2+, which has octahedral molecular geometryand is paramagnetic. Other names for copper(II) sulfate are "blue vitriol" and "bluestone".
It can be used to make conductive inks, reducing it with AscorbicAcid and PVP (polivynilpyrrolidone).
It can be used for plating copper on other metal, even with self-reductive methods.
It can be used on SILAR methods to deposit thin films of CuO or CuS on other substrates, for make PV thin-film cell.
It can be used to make Cu(OH)2 precipitation inside our hydrophilic graphite felts and make the cathode of a primary alkaline cell with
a double specific capacity than MnO2/based alkaline cell.
