For a final task, I need to determine a procedure to extract pure copper (Cu(s)) from a mixture of CuSO4 pentahydrate and NaCl.
The Attempt at a Solution
Well, I honestly don't know where to begin. I think I would need to dissovle the micture in water to seperate the hydrate from the copper II sulphate. Then I'm stukc. Can anyone offer any guidance?
