Hydrated copper sulfate.
« on: November 11, 2008, 11:40:07 AM »
Is it possible for it to create a form CuSO4 x 4H2O?

I know it is usually present in pentahydrate form, but that is the result I got after conducting a labwork. I don't know if I should treat it as a mistake, or if it is actually possible to get such form of copper sulfate.

As far as I know, the only stable forms are the mono and pentahydrates. Doesn't mean that the tetrahydrate does not exist, mind. Maybe you made some errors in your calculations, or lab technique?
