Cupric acetate appears as a blue-green crystalline solid. The primary hazard is the threat to the environment. Immediate steps should be taken to limit its spread to the environment. It is used as an insecticide, in the preparation of other chemicals, as a fungicide, and mildew preventive.
Copper(II) acetate monohydrate is used in biochemical applications such as DNA extraction. Copper(II) complexes have been evaluated for anticancer, antibacterial and antifungal activities.
Cupric Acetate is a blue-green, crystalline (sand-like) solid with a slight Acetic Acid (vinegar) odor. It is used to make other chemicals and pigments, and as a pesticide, fungicide and catalyst.
also describes the conjugate base or ion (specifically, the negatively charged ion called an anion) typically found in aqueous solution and written with the chemical formula C2H3O−2.
