This is about the charges of polyatomic ions, determined by the number of valence electrons (i.e. group number in the periodic table) brought by all the atoms in the ion: If the polyatomic ion contains an odd number of atoms from elements with odd atomic number the charge of the polyatomic ion is odd. Otherwise the charge is even. The most common charges ...

Ogawa et al. [1] were first to report a crystal structure (CSD-YAFNOI) of a compound with quaternary sulfur, bis(2,2′-biphenylylene)sulfurane: Figure 1. Molecular structure of bis(2,2'-biphenylene)sulfurane (CSD-YAFNOI). Color code: $\color{#EEEEEE}{\Large\bullet}~\ce{H}$; $\color{#909090}{\Large\bullet}~\ce{C}$; $\color{#FFFF30}{\Large\bullet}~\ce{S}$. ...

Tetraamminecopper(II) Sulfate or cuprammonium sulfate can be synthesized as its monohydrate (Ref.1): A solution of $\pu{50 g}$ of finely divided $\ce{CuSO4 . 5 H2O}$ in $\pu{75 mL}$ of conc. ammonia and $\pu{50 mL}$ of water is filtered and precipitated by slow addition of $\pu{75 mL}$ of alcohol. After standing for several hours in the cold, the crystals ...

You are right with copper does not react with aluminium ions. But as a side reaction, copper may get slowly oxidized by oxygen and dissolve in mildly acidic solution of aluminium salt. Such a thing may happen, if you decalcify copper heating spiral by vinegar and let it stay overnight. $$\ce{ 2 Cu + 4 CH3COOH + O2 -> 2 (CH3COO)2Cu + 2H2O }$$ ...
