Cupric oxide Chemical Properties,Usage,Production

Description

Copper (II) oxide is used for blue-green pigmentation in ceramics. As a naturally occurring compound produced from mining, it is also used as a precursor to other cooper applications, including fungicide and wood preservatives. In this capacity, it is used as an antifouling paint agent for boat hulls, and other outdoor, freshwater, and seawater wood constructions. It is also occasionally used for animal feed, but incorrectly, as its copper bioavailability is inferior to of a number of other compounds including cupric acetate and alkaline Cu carbonate. Other uses include preparation of superconductors, manufacture of batteries, and as a catalyst for various industrial processes.

Chemical properties

Black monoclinic crystal or black to brown-black amorphous crystalline powder; Insoluble in water and alcohol; soluble in dilute acid, ammonium chloride, ammonium carbonate and potassium cyanide.

Uses

Copper(II) oxide is used as pigments for coloring glass, ceramics, porcelain and artificial gems; in batteries and electrodes; in antifouling paints; in electroplating; in welding fluxes for bronze; in the production of rayons; for removal of sulfur from oils; in phosphor mixtures; for polishing optical glass; and as a catalyst. It also is used to prepare various copper compounds. Copper(II) oxide is found in nature as the minerals tenorite and paramelaconite. They differ in crystalline structure: tenorite exists as triclinic crystals while paramelaconite consists of tetrahedral cubic crystals.

Uses

1. Cupric oxide Can Used for glass, porcelain colorants, oil desulfurization agent, hydrogenation agent, organic synthesis catalyst, and also used in the manufacture of rayon, gas analysis, etc.
2. Used as analytical reagent (for nitrogen determination), oxidant and catalyst.
3. Used for the coloring agents in glass, enamel and ceramic industry, the anti-wrinkle agents of paint and the polish of optical glass. Used in the manufacture of dyes, organic catalyst carriers and copper compounds. Also used in the manufacture of artificial silk and oil desulfurization agents. Used as the raw materials of other nantokites and artificial gemstones.
4. Used as the pigments of glass and porcelain, desulfurization agents, catalysts, and also used in rayon industry
5. Used for the determination of carbon compounds in organic compounds
6. Used as analytical reagents, oxidants, catalysts and petroleum desulfurizers.
7. Cupric oxide Can used for the coloring agents in glass, enamel and ceramic industry, the anti-wrinkle agents of paint and the polish of optical glass. Used in the manufacture of dyes, organic catalyst carriers and copper compounds. Also used in the manufacture of artificial silk and oil desulfurization agents. Used as the raw materials of other nantokites and artificial gemstones.
8. Used for blue green pigments, artificial gemstones, colored glass, ceramic glaze, oil desulfurization agents and organic synthesis catalysts, as well as for the carbon determination in gas analysis. The applications of Nano-copper oxide: (1) as an important inorganic material, it has a wide range of applications in the catalytic, superconducting, ceramics and other fields; (2) used as catalyst , catalyst carrier and electrode active material;(3) used for the colorants of glass and porcelain, the polishing agents of optical glass, organic synthesis catalysts, oil desulfurization agents and hydrogenation agents;(4) used for the manufacture of artificial gemstones and other copper oxides;(5) used for rayon manufacture, gas analysis and organic compounds determination;(6) used as the burning rate catalyst of rocket propellant. Nano-copper oxide powder has more excellent catalytic activity and selectivity than the large-sized copper oxide powder.

Production methods

1.  Copper powder oxidation method. Reaction equation:
4Cu + O2 → 2Cu2O
2Cu2O + 2O2 → 4CuO
CuO + H2SO4 → CuSO4 + H2O
CuSO4 + Fe → FeSO4 + Cu↓
2Cu + O2 → 2CuO
Operating methods: roast the raw materials of copper ash and copper slag, and then heat them with gas for the initial oxidation to remove the water and organic impurities in raw materials. The resulting primary oxides are naturally cooled, pulverized, and then subjected to secondary oxidation to obtain crude copper oxides. Add crude copper oxides to the reactor pre-loaded 1: 1 sulfuric acid, and react under heating and stirring until the relative density of the liquid doubles and the pH value becomes 2 to 3. After the generated copper sulfate solution stands until clarification, add iron shavings under heating and stirring conditions to replace copper, and then wash the mixture with hot water to remove sulfate and iron. After centrifugal separation and drying, the above copper is oxidized and roasted for 8 hours at 450℃. Then the crude products are cooled and crushed to 100 mesh. After oxidized in oxidizing furnace, the final copper oxide powders are obtained by centrifugal separation.

Chemical Properties

Black fine free powder

Chemical Properties

Copper metal, metal compounds and alloys are often used in “hot” operations in the workplace. The workplace operations include, but are not limited to, welding, brazing, soldering, plating, cutting, and metalizing. At the high temperatures reached in these operations, metals often form metal fumes that have different health effects.

Uses

As pigment in glass, ceramics, enamels, porcelain glazes, artificial gems; in manufacture of rayon, other Cu Compounds; in sweetening petroleum gases; in galvanic electrodes; as flux in metallurgy; in correcting Cu deficiencies in soil; as optical-glass polishing agent; in antifouling paints, pyrotechnic compositions; as exciter in phosphor mixtures; as catalyst for organic reactions; in high tempereture superconductors.

Definition

A black solid prepared by the action of heat on copper(II) nitrate, hydroxide, or carbonate. It is a basic oxide and reacts with dilute acids to form solutions of copper(II) salts. Copper(II) oxide can be reduced to copper by heating in a stream of hydrogen or carbon monoxide. It can also be reduced by mixing with carbon and heating the mixture. Copper(II) oxide is stable up to its melting point, after which it decomposes to give oxygen, copper(I) oxide, and eventually copper.

Health Hazard

Exposures to copper fume cause fever, chills, muscle aches, nausea, dry throat, coughing, weakness, lassitude, irritation to the eyes, nose, throat, skin, upper respiratory tract, chest tightness, nose bleed, edema, and lung damage. Symptoms of copper fume poisoning also include metallic or sweet taste, skin itching, skin rash, skin allergy, and a greenish color to the skin, teeth, and hair. Workers have increased risk of Wilson’s disease.

Precautions

Occupational workers should use protective clothing, such as suits, gloves, footwear, and headgear, and promptly change the contaminated clothing/work dress. Workers should not eat, smoke, or drink where copper dust or powder is handled, processed, or stored. Workers should wash hands carefully before eating, drinking, smoking, or using the toilet. The workplace should have a vacuum or a wet method facility to reduce the metal dust during cleanup
