In CuSO4.5H2O, four water molecules are coordinated to Cu+2, while one is hydrogen bonded with SO42-.

Copper sulfate pentahydrate contains copper(II) in a geometry best described as distorted octahedral. The copper(II) is bound to four water molecules in a square-planar geometry and two oxygen atoms from two sulfate ions (one H2O is H-Bonded here).

This salt dissolves in water to produce the pale-blue [Cu(H2O)6]2+ ion, in which two of the water molecules are less tightly held and have longer bond distances.
