Application

Copper acetate forms complexes which may be used in biochemical reactions such as; DNA extraction, binding ribose hydroxyls of purine and pyrimidine nucleosides. A study has shown Cu (OAc)2 to fix and remove tannins in samples from Pyrus yielding high quality DNA. The complexes have been studied for anticancer, anti-bacterial and antifungal activities.

General description

Copper acetate (Cu (OAc)2) occurs in dimeric structure in solid state and in non-aqueous solution. Anhydrous Cu (OAc)2 may be manufactured by heating or refluxing the monohydrate Cu (OAc)2 at 90oC and then washing the insoluble product with diethyl ether.
