    I don't know what Dliquid means, but could it be that it is the crystaline state of a compound with water included in its structure?

    It is commonly notated as compound . x H2O

    so a hydrate you think?

    someone correct me if im damn wrong:

    aqueous simplified means its a fluid (liquid or gas) in water. the water doesnt really have anything to do with the substance and doesnt react.

    hydrated means that theres water molecules attached to the substance, but it doesnt affect the state of it, as in it can be solid and hydrated (CuS does that right? turns blue? man its been a while...)

    A liquid is any substance in a state of certain fluidity; namely, it has a fixed volume, but not a fixed shape. An aqueous solution is strictly ions dissolved in water. Better yet, it is an ionically bonded substance whose ionic bonds have been broken by the highly dipolar water molecule.

    It's actually the Cu+2 ion that causes the blue coloring, but we all knew that.
