Basic cupric chloride is a safe and bioavailable source of copper, ideal for livestock. Basic cupric chloride combats copper-related complications and helps address oxidation, discoloration, caking and nutrient loss in feed and premixes.
Basic copper chloride also known as dicopper chloride trihydroxide is green crystal or dark green crystalline powder, insoluble in water, soluble in dilute acid and ammonia water. It reacts with alkali to form blue flocculent precipitate, which is copper hydroxide, and decomposes in boiling water to form black copper oxide. Used as pesticide intermediates, pharmaceutical intermediates, wood preservatives, feed additives, etc.

Basic copper chloride is a trace mineral used as a copper source in feed, and its copper content is as high as 58%. This basic salt is insoluble in water but dissolves easily and rapidly in the intestinal tract of animals.
Compared with other copper sources, animal feed basic copper chloride has a high utilization rate and can dissolve quickly in the digestive tract. Stable and low hygroscopicity, it does not accelerate the oxidation of vitamins and antibiotics.
The biological effectiveness and biological safety of basic copper chloride are higher than that of copper sulfate. The amount of copper used is less than that of copper sulfate, which can completely replace copper sulfate. Not only can the feed cost be reduced, but also the environmental pollution caused by copper excretion can be greatly reduced.
