Cuprous Oxide, or Copper(I) Oxide, is a highly insoluble copper oxide commonly used in producing various paints, glass, and fertilizers. Cuprous oxide is a reddish-brown crystal or powder that can be found in nature as the mineral cuprite, and produced through electrolysis with an aqueous chloride solution and through the reduction of copper oxide ores with copper metal. Because of its high insolubility and stability in aqueous solutions, cuprous oxide is an optimal ingredient for simple ceramic structures as well as renewable energy and electrochemical technologies.
