Experiment #4 Technical Abstract The Copper Cycle Introduction Copper is important; this is evident through the significance of copper to ancient Egyptian and Chinese civilization, its significance to the world economy, the necessity of copper for the health of humans biologically. It also can have negative effects: at high concentrations copper may be considered a toxin, and copper has become a common pollutant due to its industrial usage. The goal of this experiment is to use the five reaction copper cycle demonstrates the properties of copper and its compounds, illustrate different types of chemical reactions, and provide a test of laboratory efficiency. Materials and Methods A rudimentary fume hood was assembled and approximately 250 mg of copper turnings were acquired. The copper metal was dissolved to make Copper(II) ion. From there, Copper(II) hydroxide was produced. Next, the Copper(II) hydroxide was dehydrated and copper(II) oxide was made. At this point, the Copper(II) oxide was dissolved and Copper(II) sulfate was produced. The copper metal was
