Copper sulphate solution. Solution of copper (II) sulphate (CuSO4, blue) in a test tube of water. Copper (II) sulphate is very soluble in water. The blue colour is due to the formation of a hydrated complex of the copper ion with the water molecules. For copper (II) sulphate being added to the water, see image A350/220.
