Storage & Sensitivity
Hygroscopic. Keep Cold.
Soluble in ethanol and water. Insoluble in ethyl acetate.


It serves as a catalyst for oxidative coupling of 2,6-dimethylphenol, resulting in an important engineering polymer material. Also used in textiles and polishing agents for other metals. It is a precursor for copper oxide, which finds use as a catalyst for many organic transformations. Menke conditions employ copper nitrate for aromatic nitrations. Claycop reagent, the hydrated copper nitrate deposited on clay, finds use in many organic reactions, for example, oxidation of dithioacetals to carbonyls and thiols to disulfides.


Hygroscopic. On heating, it forms basic copper nitrate containing hydroxy anions, and on further heating, it forms cupric oxide liberating nitrogen dioxide and oxygen.
