Description

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.

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.
