Balanced Chemical Equation

C2H6O + 6Cu(OH)2 = C2H2O2 + 3Cu2O + 8H2O

Reaction Information

Dimethyl Ether + Copper(ii) Hydroxide = Hypooxalous Acid + Copper(i) Oxide + Water
  • Dimethyl Ether (C2H6O)
    Ethanol Ethyl Alcohol
  • Copper(ii) Hydroxide (Cu(OH)2)
  • Hypooxalous Acid (C2H2O2)
  • Copper(i) Oxide (Cu2O)
  • Water (H2O)


To balance a chemical equation, enter an equation of a chemical reaction and press the Balance button. The balanced equation will appear above.

  • Use uppercase for the first character in the element and lowercase for the second character. Examples: Fe, Au, Co, Br, C, O, N, F.
  • Ionic charges are not yet supported and will be ignored.
  • Replace immutable groups in compounds to avoid ambiguity. For example, C6H5C2H5 + O2 = C6H5OH + CO2 + H2O will not be balanced, but XC2H5 + O2 = XOH + CO2 + H2O will.
  • Compound states [like (s) (aq) or (g)] are not required.
  • You can use parenthesis () or brackets [].
