is it CuCl3 reasonable?

3 Answers

  • It is very unlikely that CuCl3 exists:

    The only two possibble oxidation states of copper are I (cuprous, Cu+) and II (cupric, Cu2+) and if it doesn't exsist then it has also NO name!

  • For a chem assignment the answer would be no since copper only has +1 and +2 anions

  • Yes. In fact it is CuCl3-

    Also it exists CuCl4=. It occurs in high Cl- concentration solution.
