    no false Cuprous ion (Cu(I), Cu+) has completely filled d-orbitals with 10 electrons (3d10), while the cupric ion (Cu(II), Cu2+) has only 9 electrons in the d orbitals, (3d9) with one electron being unpaired. Consequently bivalent copper (Cu(II)) is paramagnetic and represents the most stable oxidation state of copper."
