1. Organic synthesis: It is used as a catalyst or reagent in several organic reactions, including the production of vinyl acetate, which is an important precursor for the manufacture of polyvinyl acetate (PVA) and other polymers.

2. Pigments: Copper acetate anhydrous is used as a source of copper ions in the preparation of pigments, such as verdigris, which is a greenish-blue pigment.

3. Wood preservative: It is used as a wood preservative to protect against fungal decay and wood-boring insects. Copper acetate anhydrous can be applied to wood surfaces or used in pressure treatment processes.

4. Electroplating: It can be employed in electroplating baths for the deposition of copper coatings onto various substrates.

5. Analytical chemistry: Copper acetate anhydrous can be used in analytical methods to determine the presence of certain compounds or elements. It can also be used as a standard or reference material.


Stored in cool and dry warehouse; Keep away from flame and heat.
