COMPOSER Johann H. Schmelzer – SEIBOLD Online-Analyser for Copper
Copper is both an essential nutrient and a drinking-water contaminant Natural sources. Most of the world’s Cu is found and mined in the form of copper sulfides and in combination with other metals that can also form multi-metalsulfide minerals (Fe, Sn, Pb, Se, As, Sb and Ag).
Industry. Copper is used for in gelectroplating and semiconducting industry,…
Natural water. Copper is found in natural surface waters at an average concentration of 0.002 mg/L, ranging from 0.001 to 0.1 mg/L, Cu in seawater is at the upper end of the range.
Drinking water. Copper concentrations in drinking-water vary widely, with the primary source most often being the corrosion of interior copper plumbing. A guideline value of 1.5 mg/litre was recommended for copper in drinkingwater.
Toxicity. Copper is not very toxic to animals and humans but can be toxic to some fish, many invertebrates and microbes, particularly fungi, algae, and bacteria.
