Could anyone please tell me what is happening when I place steel into my PHdown pickle pot to purposely copper plate sterling (or solder on copper).The pickle fizzes around the steel (an old pair of pliers) and creates noxious fumes. Of course, when I remove the pliers, the reaction stops. Whatgas is being created? Many thanks for all the wonderful help I receive.

Hydrogen with perhaps a whiff of H2SO4
