Abstract

The global pandemic has forced many educators to instruct their students online and use home resources to continue their education. Developing chemistry protocols for students and educators that can be performed at home will further help alleviate the pandemic's pressures on the educational process. This paper explores the process of producing CuSO4 using products and equipment available in stores or online retailers. The protocol developed in this project produced CuSO4 pentahydrate for use in a home laboratory, and the process provides several avenues for lessons and classroom discussion.
