Basic copper carbonate? I thought just need to add sodium carbonate?

I have not done this however, I went the opposite direction.

Well, I've made Copper Carbonate. Copper Sulfate/Sodium BiCarbonate. Pretty insoluble.

Acetic acid is a stronger acid than Carbonic.... So, Sodium Carbonate+Copper Acetate > Sodium Acetate+Copper Carbonate. Probably.

Assuming Copper Acetate is soluble. The insolubility of Copper Carbonate should drive the reaction. I'll check.

Well, Copper Acetate isn't the most soluble.

Ummm. Like the reaction better with Copper Sulfate.

Strong acid combined with Strong base> Sodium Sulfate

Weak Acid/Weak Base> Copper Carbonate PPT.

I'll check.

Yes, it certainly works. Copper acetate is plenty soluble.

It will become basic copper carbonate though, something like Cu2(OH)2CO3.
