Description:Copper Carbonate decomposes to CuO


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

  • (Glossary) Carbon Burnout

    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...
