Copper Sulfate and Potassium Chloride


I was just staring at my bottle of copper sulfate crystals and remembering the reaction I did with iron inside a solution of copper sulfate, and got to thinking; would it be possible to use a solution of copper sulfate and potassium chloride to make copper chloride and potassium sulfate? What about with copper sulfate and potassium chlorate?

You would have alot of difficultly in separating what you want as copper chloride/chlorate are both very soluble in water.

Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solubility_table




Atropine, Bicarb, Calcium.

Well, at least it's possible, which is cool. :P

Actually, I was just looking around at stuff I have, and it could work with nickel to produce nickel sulfate, correct? (I could use that to make nickel oxide for thermite.)

If you really want to turn your copper sulphate into copper chloride, precipitate the copper as copper carbonate, copper hydroxide, or copper oxide, then dissolve that precipitate in hydrochloric acid.

If you add Copper Sulfate and Potassium Chloride into water you'll get a solution containing Copper ions, Potassium ions, Chloride ions and Sulfate ions. If you boil said solution, you'll get a mixture of all the possible ion combinations (Potassium Sulfate, Potassium Chloride, Copper Sulfate and Copper Chloride).

If you added, for instance, Copper Sulfate to Potassium Acetate things would be different. You would initially get a solution of Copper ions, Potassium ions, Sulfate ions and Acetate ions. However, because Copper Acetate is insoluble in water, Copper ions and Acetate ions would combine to form a percepitate of Copper Acetate, thus leaving a solution of Potassium Sulfate.

Those where only 2 examples of the extremly large spectrum of double displacement reactions. Look it up to find more info...

How is cupric acetate insoluble in water? Basic copper(II) carbonate will react with acetic acid to form a blue solution. According to wiki the solubility ranges from 72g/L to 200g/L, not overly soluble, but not insoluble either.

Crap, so many other examples I could have given...
