Copper Purification Process

2021/12/29Electrolytic refining (electrorefining) is a process used to make impure copper pure. Unlike aluminum, copper metal is fairly easy to obtain chemically from its ores. By electrolysis, it can be refined and made very pure—up to 99.999%. The electrorefining is at the heart of not only copper purification, but the production of sodium hydroxide

Electrolysis

When a strip of impure metallic copper is used as the anode in the electrolysis of an aqueous preparation of copper(II) sulfate, copper is oxidized. The oxidation of copper is more facile than the oxidation of water (see the standard oxidation potentials below) so metallic copper dissolves into solution as copper(II) ions, leaving behind many of the impurities (less active metals):
