Copper oxide is a black oxide of copper that is slightly bisexual and slightly hygroscopic. The relative molecular mass is 79.545, the density is 6.3-6.9 g/cm, and the melting point is 1326 °C. Do not dissolve in water and ethanol, soluble in acid, ammonium chloride and potassium cyanide solution, slowly dissolve in ammonia solution, can react with strong base. Copper oxide is mainly used for making rayon, ceramics, glaze and enamel, batteries, petroleum desulfurizers, insecticides, hydrogen, catalysts, green glass, etc.

Storage and transportation of copper oxide:

Copper oxide storage: Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat. It should be stored separately from reducing agents, alkali metals and food chemicals, and should not be mixed. The storage area should be provided with suitable materials to contain spills.

Copper oxide disposal and storage operations Note:

Closed operation, local exhaust. Operators must be specially trained to strictly follow the operating procedures. Operators are advised to wear self-priming filter dust masks, chemical safety glasses, anti-poison penetrating overalls, and rubber gloves. Avoid dust. Avoid contact with reducing agents or alkali metals. Lightly load and unload during handling to prevent damage to the packaging. Equipped with leakage emergency treatment equipment. Empty containers may be harmful residues.

Copper oxide transport: The packaging should be complete at the time of shipment and the loading should be secure. During transportation, ensure that the container does not leak, does not collapse, does not fall, and is not damaged. It is strictly forbidden to mix and transport with reducing agents, alkali metals, food chemicals, etc. During transportation, it should be protected from exposure, rain and high temperature. The vehicle should be thoroughly cleaned after transportation.
