Overview of Cuprous Oxide Cu2O Powder

Cuprous oxide, the chemical formula is Cu2O, is a monovalent cupric oxide, bright red powder solid, almost insoluble in water, disproportionate into divalent copper and copper elements in an acidic solution, and gradually oxidized into black copper oxide in humid air.

 Cuprous oxide is commonly used as a pigment, biocide and antifouling agent in marine coatings. Rectifier diodes based on this material were used in industry as early as 1924, long before silicon became the standard. Copper(I) oxide is also responsible for the positive pink color of the Benedict test.

Ingestion Toxic if swallowed. Skin May be harmful if absorbed through skin. May cause skin irritation. Eyes May cause eye irritation.

Cuprous oxide Cu2O powder application

Antifouling paint for ships and bottoms; it is an effective corrosion control.

Glass and porcelain coatings.

Used as p-type semiconductor material, used in the manufacture of photometer cells and in the manufacture of rectifiers.

Used as a fungicide and seed dressing.

Cuprous oxide is often used as a catalyst for the production of other chemicals. Used in the manufacture of zinc chloride, ferrous chloride, etc. It is also used as a UV absorber in surface treatment products.

Cuprous oxide is one of the most common oxides in batteries, accounting for 9% to 15% of all batteries. It is also used in metal production, building and construction, and in the production of plastics and other organic compounds. It is an ingredient in some paints and is used as an oxidizer in many metal plating processes.

Used as ultra-high-purity reagents, catalysts and effective preservatives in industry and construction. It is particularly suitable for manufacturing and process control, as well as the construction industry. It is also used in water treatment, especially to purify water to remove dissolved particles and for the polymerization of certain polymers.

The process is used as a catalyst in metallurgy and is important for steel production. The catalyst acts as a reducing agent in the oxidation of iron.

Used as a pigment and flame retardant, as a flux in metal smelting.
