Hydronium + Sodium Chloride Reaction
Hello again forum!
I'm doing a few experiments at home with a protonated saline solution and need some assistance. What is the reaction between the hydronium ion and sodium chloride. I think it's:
H30(+) + NaCl => H2 + H(+) + NaOH
but I'm not sure. Any advice would be great appreciated!

Consider H+. In order to get H2 from 2 of those, you'd also need 2 electrons. The only way I know of to get hydrogen gas from an acid is to react it with a metal, which easily provides the electrons it needs. That alone would prevent your proposed reaction from occurring.

Thanks for the response!
What if I used electrolysis? What would the reaction for H3O + NaCl be?
