Copper acetate II

Post by Didier_Micro »

Dear microscopist friends

An easy observation to make.
Take a a coin of one cent of euros (steel covered with copper), put one or two drops of vinegar (acetic acid) on it, and just wait a few hours.
Here's the result :
Copper acetate - Didier Barbet 1
Copper acetate - Didier Barbet 1
Copper acetate - Didier Barbet 3
Copper acetate - Didier Barbet 3
Copper acetate - Didier Barbet 4
Copper acetate - Didier Barbet 4
Copper acetate - Didier Barbet 5
Copper acetate - Didier Barbet 5


(Wash the piece afterwards to get it back, although I don't know what we can buy nowadays with this amount of money).

Regards
