The tetrachlorocuprate ion is a chloro complex of copper, represented by the formula [CuCl4]2-.
The tetrachlorocuprate ion is hard to get in solid form, but is rather easy to calcinate. Tetrachlorocuprate ions react violently with aluminium to form fine copper and aluminium(III) ions. In solution, the tetrachlorocuprate ion is bright green.
