Cuprous chloride catalysts are not often seen in our lives, so many users do not have a special understanding of them. Wujiang Weishida Copper Technology Co., Ltd. is dedicated to helping everyone understand the catalyst of Cuprous Chloride. Organized some information for your reference:
The cuprous chloride catalyst has a relatively high density, a high melting point and a high boiling point. It can form a complex with concentrated hydrochloric acid, but it cannot be dissolved in water. Generally it is grayish-white cubic crystal, and sometimes we will see an off-white powder. Generally speaking, we define it like this:
CuCl is a covalent compound and its melt conductivity is poor. The relative molecular mass of the vapor was determined to confirm that its molecular formula should be Cu2Cl2, and its chemical formula is usually written as CuCl. Stable in dry air, it is easy to turn blue to brown when damp. Iron gray when molten. It is rapidly oxidized into a basic salt in the exposed air and is green. The light turns brown.
The cuprous chloride catalyst can be rapidly hydrolyzed in hot water to form cuprous oxide hydrate, which is red and reacts slowly with strong acid. Therefore, it can be used as a catalyst for organic synthesis and is used in industries such as pigments and antisepsis.
