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)
Ceramic materials, especially clays, often contain carbon and organic compounds. When they are fired in a kiln, these must burn out, often producing complications.
