Copper(II) acetate is used in biochemical applications such as DNA extraction. It is used as a source of copper in inorganic synthesis, an oxidizing agent and as a catalyst in organic synthesis. It is also used to couple two terminal alkynes to make a 1,3-diyne. It is widely used in pigments, manufacture of paris green, in textile dyeing, skin conditioner in cosmetics, and as antioxidant and stabilizer in food grade polymers.
