The Cu-Cl cycle involves four chemical reactions whose net reaction decomposes water into hydrogen and oxygen. All other chemicals are recycled. The Cu-Cl process requires an efficient source of heat.
The Cu-Cl cycle is a hybrid process that employs both thermochemical and electrolysis steps.
The four reactions in the Cu-Cl cycle are as follows:
Legend: (g)—gas; (l)—liquid;(aq)—aqueous solution; the balance of the species are in a solid phase.
