« on: January 25, 2010, 03:59:20 AM »
what is the reaction between copper (II) sulphate pentahydrate and concentrated ammonia?
 CuSO4.5(H2O) + NH4 = ??

Ammonia has a formula NH3
Look at you textbook for coordination compounds

That's not ammonia.
This is : NH3

They react because copper(II) sulfate is an acid and ammonia is a base.

No, it is a salt.

No, it is just a salt. Probably slightly acidic due to copper hydrolysis.
