( Cupric Oxide )
( fine powder )
Black Copper Oxide,
also known as Copper (II) Oxide, is used as a catalyst in various chemical reactions and also to purify
Hydrogen gas. It finds use in superconductivity research as a component
itself, and to produce other compounds used in superconductive materials.
it is used as a catalyst in novel blue strobe rocket propellant
formulations, and in general to impart a blue color to flames. Strobe
rocket propellants burn intermittently, producing a rapid series of bursts
of thrust, as opposed to a conventional continuous burn rocket propellant.
