    Hi Kathy, from what I remember from my apprenticeship training A LONG TIME ago
    There is no such thing as H+ in solution, since that would basically be just a proton. aqueous acids (water based, as most are) are actually H3O+, which isnt explosive at all. the term pH should really be pH3O+, but they use pH out of convention. also, chlorine bonding with oxygen will NOT make a hydroxy group, there is no chlorine in hydroxy (OH-)

    Hydrogen is produced when a metal comes in contact with acids (except for nitric acid). You need pretty concentrated acid to form enough hydrogen to be of any real danger.

    Actual problems from this collection occur rarely, but the nature of our litigous society creates a necessity to warn of any possible danger. EXACTLY
