What Is Copper Sulphate?
Copper sulphate (CuSO4), also known as copper II sulfate, is a chemical salt compound with varying hydration levels. In its least hydrated form, it is a light green or off-white colour. In its most hydrated form, copper sulphate appears as bright blue crystals. It is produced by treating copper metal with sulphuric acid and is most commonly found as a pentahydrate salt.
Copper sulphate is classed as an irritant and may cause itching or eczema. If consumed, this compound can result in copper sulphate poisoning which could lead to permanent brain damage.
