Copper sulphate is used in a number of sectors for manufacturing various products such as soil steriliser, disinfectants, adhesives, insecticides, etc. The global copper sulphate market has grown at a fast rate owing to its diverse applications.

Copper sulphate or cupric sulphate (CuSO4) is a salt of copper which exists in varying amounts of hydration. Most commonly, it is found as bright blue or green coloured crystals, due to which it is also known as blue vitriol, bluestone, vitriol of copper and roman vitriol. It is the most commonly used salt which is produced industrially by treating copper metal with hot concentrated sulfuric acid or its oxides with dilute sulfuric acid. Alternatively, it can also be produced by slowly leaching low grade copper ore in air.
