Hi, this is my first post here and don't know much about formatting. Also english ins't my first language so I may write something wrong. I'm desperate for help.
I'm doing a lab practice where I have to synthesize copper oxide (I) and copper oxide (II). My initial reagent is 5g of copper acetate and I add hydrazine. I can't find out the reaction there. I tried the following:
And then I guess the Cu (I) reacts with oxygen to get Cu2
Is this correct? Can someone explain what is going on?
The second part I use the Cu2
O and add hot concentrated sulfuric acid but that part I find it easier. The Cu(I) disproportionates and Cu with the hot concentrated acid forms CuSO4
so we have Cu2+
. After we add OH-
will form the hydroxide and dehydrating we get the CuO
EDIT: forgot to add in the first part, why is it green? Copper acetate is bluish-green but in the script I have it says that it turns green and a gas is released, is it the [Cu(H2
? And for the gas maybe H2
