Molecule Structure Image



Copper(II) chloride dihydrate is used as catalyst for organic and inorganic reactions. In petroleum industry it is used as deodorizing, desulphurising and purifying agent. Used as mordant for dyeing and printing textiles, and as oxidizing agent for aniline dyestuffs. It is also used in indelible, invisible and laundrymarking inks, manufacture of fast black - melanin, and for electroplating copper on aluminium. In photography copper(II) chloride dihydrate is used as a fixer, desensitizer. It is also used as pigments for glass, ceramics and as component of wood preservative, disinfectant and animal feed supplement.
