🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor de Laat's class at University of Guelph.
Which of the following metal cations is the best oxidizing agent?
Recall: Oxidizing agent - species that is reduced in a redox reaction
Reduction potential (ε) - tendency of an ion to be reduced. Ions with high reduction potentials are usually reduced (oxidizing agents), while ions with low reduction potentials get oxidized (reducing agents) instead.
