Copper (II) phosphate can be produced by combining copper (II) sulfate and trisodium phosphate in a molar ratio of 3: 2. Another preparation involves the reaction of copper carbonate with phosphoric acid: 3 Cu2CO3 (OH ) 2 + 4 H3PO4 → 2 Cu3 (PO4) 2 + 3 CO2 + 9 H2O. Monoammonium phosphate also works for this supplement.
Precipitation of copper (II) phosphate. This creates a precipitate of copper phosphate (Cu3 (PO4) 2): CuSO4 + Na3PO4> Cu3 (PO4) 2 + Na2SO4. This is an example of a double shift reaction.
Trisodium phosphate (TSP) is the inorganic compound with the chemical formula Na3PO4. It is a white, granular or crystalline solid that is very soluble in water and forms an alkaline solution.
Cu3 (PO4) 2
Copper (II) phosphate is a blue powdery substance that is insoluble in water and ethanol, but is soluble in ammonia and mineral acids.
When the unit of the formula represents 1 mole of copper (II) phosphate, it is 2 ■■■■■ of phosphorus per 1 mole of copper (II) phosphate of formula. One mole of atoms = 6.022 × 1023 atoms.
Nomenclature of covalent compounds
Copper (II) phosphate is used as an organic catalyst, fertilizer, emulsifier, corrosion inhibitor for phosphoric acid, metal preservative and feed additive.
Composition of (Cu3 (PO4) 2)
Many ionic solids such as silver chloride (AgCl) do not dissolve in water. The forces holding the solid AgCl network together are too strong to be overcome by the forces promoting the formation of the hydrate ions Ag + (aq) and Cl (aq).
