Best Answer

Copper Chloride (CuCl2) would have to react with another compound in order for it to produce hydrogen.


Cu2+ will never produce hydrogen because it can not REDUCE at all, only oxidize another substance.

To 'make' hydrogen it is necessary to extract electrons from a reductant (= electron donor). Copper metal (Cu) would be able to do to H+ ions (from strong acids).
