Applications of Cuprous Oxide (Cu2O)

Submitted by admin on Wed, 01/09/2019 - 08:49

Copper is the oldest-known metal used by humankind to make tools and decorations, helping form the transition from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age. After millennia of using wood, stones, and animal bones, copper transformed the abilities of early peoples, pushing them to invent ore smelting, mining, and metalworking.

Cuprous Oxide- The inorganic compound with the formula Cu2O. It is one of the principal oxides of copper, the other being another one is cupric oxide (CuO). 

Cu2O is used in red ceramic porcelain glazes and red glasses. Also a pigment for anti-fouling paints. CuO is used as a flux for CA metallurgy, as an optical glass polishing agent, as a pigment, in sweeting petroleum gases and in galvanic electrodes

Cuprous oxide applications:
Anti-fouling coatings
Mineral supplement for animal diets
Colorant for porcelain, glazes, and glass
Brazing pastes
Agricultural foliar fertilizer
Agricultural fungicide and seed dressing
