Copper is an essential trace element in human diet (the daily requirement is around 2.0 mg) and a factor in plant metabolism.
On the other hand, corrosion of copper alloys in pipe fittings may introduce considerable quantities of copper into water supplies.
Copper salts react with bicinchoninate reagent to form a purple product in a neutral buffered condition. The amount of color developed is directly proportional to the concentration of copper present in the aqueous sample.
