Is the decomposition equation for copper sulphate hydrate (CuSO4.5H2O) as follows:

CuSO4+5H2O?

Thanks

  • Chemistry -

    CuSO4.5H2O ---> CuSO4+5H2O is correct if the heating is somewhat gentle. The solid product, anhydrous CuSO4 is white.
    If you heat the hydrate too strongly, you will end up with black CuO.
