|Copper (II) Sulfate is a chemical compound with the formula CuSO4. It occurs in nature as mineral hydrocyanite. It is gray to white and has rhombic crystal morphology. It decomposes to green basic copper (II) sulphate at 340 deg C and at 600-650 deg C it decomposes to copper oxide. It is generally prepared by controlled heating of Copper Sulphate Pent-hydrate, CuSO4.5H2O. Copper sulphate term is generally used to describe pent hydrate compound of copper sulphate which is also known as blue stone, blue vitriol etc. It is best known and the most widely used of the copper salts. Indeed it is often the starting raw material for the production of many of the other copper salts. Today the world's consumption is around 250,000 tons per annum of which it is estimated that approximately three-quarters are used in agriculture, principally as a fungicide. Uses & Application Anhydrous Copper sulphate has limited commercial use. • It is used as a desiccant for removing water from organic solvents. • It acts as a sensitive indicator of the presence of moisture in organic solvents. Copper sulphate pentahydrate is a very versatile chemical with as extensive a range of uses in industry. • It is used as an algaecide, an herbicide in irrigation and municipal water treatment systems, and as a molluscicide, a material used to repel and kill slugs and snails. • The metal industry uses large quantities of copper sulphate as an electrolyte in copper refining, for copper coating steel wire prior to wire drawing and in various copper plating processes. • The mining industry employs it as an activator in the concentration by froth flotation of lead, zinc, cobalt and gold ores. • The printing trade takes it as an electrolyte in the production of electrotype and as an etching agent for process engraving. • The paint industry uses it in anti-fouling paints and it plays a part in the coloring of glass. • Copper sulphate is a fungicide used to control bacterial and fungal diseases of fruit, vegetable, nut and field crops. It is used in combination with lime and water as a protective fungicide, referred to as Bordeaux mixture, for leaf application and seed treatment. • Copper deficiency in plants or animals can be corrected very simply either by applying 50 kg copper sulphate per hectare in the form of a fertilizer before sowing or by spraying the foliage of the young cereal plants. Market Survey The Market Survey on Copper Sulphate is of topical interest in the sense that copper is important metal used in India from ancient times. In fact, one age of human civilization is named after copper. Copper is also used in the alloy form as brass and bronze because of the added advantages. Copper was a scarce metal with respect to India but recent setting up of copper smelters has entirely changed the scenario of copper production/availability in the country. However, these copper smelters, except that of HCL, are producing copper based on the imported concentrates. This has opened a new path for the chemical manufacturing companies for producing copper based chemicals in the country. With numerous copper mines in the country, Copper compounds manufacturing has taken a good shot in last few years. Many Companies are setting their projects at different places in India. They produce environment friendly copper sulphate fertilizer, Copper Sulphate Electroplating Grade, Copper Sulphate Feed grade having 98% Copper content. Copper sulphate is widely used as fungicide in agricultural field. Therefore demand of copper sulphate directly depends upon the usage and development of agriculture in a country. In India, the total installed annual capacity of 43 technical grades of pesticides and fungicide is estimated at 148,000 tonnes of which only four grades (Mancozab 20,700 tonnes, Monocrotophos 14,000 tonnes, Malathion 11,800 tonnes and Endo-sulphan 10,100 tonnes) account for over 38% of the aggregate installed capacities. ? India is one among the most dynamic generic pesticides & fungicides manufacturing countries. And yet, India's own average consumption of it is low, below 500 gms per ha. Crop protection has assumed special importance since the food grains demand in the country is supposed to reach an estimated 343 mn tonnes by 2020. The agrochemical industry allocates an average of about 10% of its total sales turnover for research and development. This amounts to Rs 3.5-4.0 bn. The agrochemical industry is spread over around 200 large and medium sized manufacturers and 600 formulators producing about 60 technical grades of pesticides. Other important players in the sector include 10 multinational companies operating for quite some time. While the organized sector contributes 55% to the industry's output, the small scale sector makes up for the balance. The Indian industry has been focusing on integrated crop management (ICM), increasing exports of genuine pesticides & fungicide and concentrating on farmer-friendly activities. With the global market rising, there are encouraging prospects for the Indian industry. The pesticide industry is targeting a 10% share of global pesticides market and has been working on the ICM program to introduce safer applications, spray devices and crop protection through balanced use of biological and chemical pesticides. The exports cover pesticide intermediates. Pesticides and fungicide exports from India were growing at the rate of 15% and are expected to witness a more accelerated growth. Demand of copper sulphate is increasing rapidly for its use as a natural growth stimulant in animals, as well as in prevention of E.coli and listeria. The food-grade Copper Sulfate industry is a $1.2 billion industry growing at approximately 15% per year.|
