What is Copper Sulphate?
is Sulphonation of Copper. It is generally available in 5H2O (Crystal)
form, though anhydrous is also available. Copper sulphate, blue
stone, blue vitriol are all common names for pentahydrated cupric
sulphate, which is the best known and the most widely used of the
Uses : Copper sulphate is a very versatile chemical with
as extensive a range of uses in industry as it has in agriculture.
It is generally used as insecticide in agriculture & wood industry.

Various Applications of
Up to a generation or so ago about its only uses in industry were
as a mordant for dyeing and for electroplating, but today it is
being used in many industrial processes. The synthetic fibre industry
employs it in the production of their raw material. The metal industry
uses large quantities of copper sulphate as an electrolyte in copper
refining, for copper coating steel wire prior to wire drawing and
in various copper plating processes. The mining industry has found
its application as an activator in the concentration by froth flotation
of lead, zinc, cobalt and gold ores. The printing trade takes it
as an electrolyte in the production of electrotype and as an etching
agent for process engraving. The paint industry uses it in anti-fouling
paints and it plays a part in the colouring of glass. These are
just some of the examples of usages of copper sulphate. Today there
is hardly an industry that does not have some small use for this
