For example, cuprous chloride and cupric chloride were recently reported having a good solubility in 1-ethyl-3methylimidazolium dicyanamide ionic liquid, which may be due to the complexation of dicyandiamide anion.
Cuprous oxide ([Cu.sub.2]O) has a cubic crystal structure with a lattice parameter of 4.27 A and this material is suitable for solar cell applications.

Cuprous oxide films were cathodically electrodeposited from 0.4 M copper sulfate (98% anhydrous) and 3M lactic acid (85% aqueous solution).
As would be expected, the post-treated layers have a lighter more-reddish appearance, indicative of the increased cuprous oxide content.
The sugar in the urine reduced the blue cupric sulfate of the alkaline solution to orange cuprous oxide.
Copper atom, for example, has the electronic structure of [Ar] 3d10 4S1 so its available oxidation states are; cuprous Cu1+ that has five occupied d orbitals so it does not produce any separate coloring, and cupric Cu2+ that gives specific coloring centers in the visible region due to the formation of strong tetragonal distortion of Cu2+ ion octahedral units [7].
Both cupric oxide (CuO) and cuprous oxide ([Cu.sub.2]O) are the two chemical compounds formed by oxygen and copper in the nature only.
Of the concerned photocatalysts, cuprous oxide ([Cu.sub.2]O), a p-type semiconductor with a small direct band gap (1.9-2.2 eV), has been proved to be the most promising candidate for visible-light-driven photocatalytic decontamination [1-4].
This is traditionally achieved by the addition of cuprous oxide as a pigment, combined with organic co-biocides, in order to deliver the required biocide activity to fight off the entire span of marine-based biofouling organisms.
