Sulfuric acid, copper(2+) salt (1:1), pentahydrate. Copper(2+) sulfate (1:1) pentahydrate [7758998]. Anhydrous 159.61 [7758987]. » Cupric Sulfate, dried at 250 to constant weight, contains not less than 98.5 percent and not more than 100.5 percent of CuSO4.
Packaging and storage—
Preserve in tight containers. Store at 25, excursions permitted between 15 and 30.
Loss on drying 731—
Dry it at 250 to constant weight: it loses between 33.0% and 36.5% of its weight.
Limit of sodium—
Stock solution—
Transfer 40.0 g of Cupric Sulfate to a 200mL volumetric flask, add water, and swirl to dissolve. Add 5 mL of nitric acid, dilute with water to volume, and mix. This solution contains 0.2 g of cupric sulfate per mL.
Test solutions—
To three 25mL volumetric flasks add a volume of Stock solution equivalent to the weight of test specimen given in the accompanying table. To two of the flasks add the amounts of reference analyte ion specified in the accompanying table. Add 2 mL of potassium chloride solution (1 in 20) to each flask, dilute with water to volume, and mix.

Assay—
Place about 650 mg of Cupric Sulfate in an accurately weighed container fitted with a groundglass stopper, dry, allow to cool in a desiccator, and weigh again to obtain the weight of the specimen. Dissolve in 50 mL of water, add 4 mL of 6 N acetic acid and 3 g of potassium iodide, and titrate the liberated iodine with 0.1 N sodium thiosulfate VS, adding about 2 g of potassium thiocyanate and 3 mL of starch TS as the endpoint is approached. Perform a blank determination, and make any necessary correction. Each mL of 0.1 N sodium thiosulfate is equivalent to 15.96 mg of CuSO4.
