  • Downloads and Documents

In this experiment the reduction of copper oxide to copper is examined (reduction as an inverse process of oxidation). Students know that many oxides (caused by a thermal reaction of atmospheric oxygen with an element) can not be decomposed thermally in a simple manner to the pure element.  But these oxides can be reduced with the help of reducing agents (for example, carbon) to the corresponding element.
