|Description:||Copper Carbonate decomposes to CuO|
NotesCopper carbonate decomposes at 290 °C, giving off carbon dioxide and leaving copper(II) oxide:
CuCO3 (s) → CuO (s) + CO2 (g)

Ceramic bodies and glazes contain materials that release carbon as they decompose on heating. Clays, gums, plasticizers are examples. These can still be burning out at higher temperatures than most people realize (cone 04 or higher). That burning generates gases, if glazes are beginning to melt befo...

•The secret to cool bodies and glazes is a lot of testing.
•The secret to know what to test is material and chemistry knowledge.
•The secret to learning from testing is documentation.
