Tetrachlorocuprate formation constant

I've looked for hours on google to find a value for the formation constant of the tetrachlorocuprate ion (CuCl4)2-, but I've found nothing. If anyone knows where I could find such information, I would appreciate it.
I've found that chloride ions catalyze the reaction between aluminium metal and aqueous copper salts, which I suspect is due to the formation of tetrachlorocuprate. So, I want to prepare solutions of copper sulfate and sodium chloride with known concentrations of tetrachlorocuprate and measure the reaction rate.
