Feb 16, 2014 Electrolysis of copper transfers copper atoms from an impure copper anode to a pure copper cathode, leaving the impurities behind. Unrefined copper is about 99 % pure. It contains traces of metals such as Fe, Zn, Ag, Au, and Pt. The purity can be increased to 99.95 % by electrolytic refining in a cell similar to that shown below. A thin sheet of high-purity Cu serves as the cathode.

May 28, 2001 Copper is a very unreactive metal - it's below even hydrogen in the reactivity series. This means it won't even react with water. For this reason, copper is obtained very easily from its ore by reduction with carbon.. However, this copper isn't pure enough for use in electrical conductors. The purer the copper is, the better it will conduct. Electrolysis is used to obtain very pure copper.
