A new method of processing the copper-containing raw material to copper(II) oxide was suggested and examined based on the chlorination of copper-containing raw material with ammonium chloride followed by dissolution of copper chloride, precipitation of copper hydroxide from a solution and its calcining to copper(II) oxide. Thermogravimetric analysis of the process was conducted. Kinetics of chlorination of copper(II) oxide by ammonium chloride was experimentally investigated. Technological scheme of the copper-containing raw material processing with ammonium chloride was suggested.
