Two radioactive isotopes of copper: Copper-64, and Copper-67 have important medical uses, and two copper compounds: copper sulfate (CuS), and copper acetate [Cu2O(C2H3O2)2] have numberous industrial and farm applications.

Copper is the world's third most widely used metal. Copper is often considered an accurate indicator of economic growth. An economic expansion is usually present or beginning if demand for copper is increasing.
