🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor de Laat's class at University of Guelph.

Solution: Which of the following metal cations is the best oxidizing agent?a. Co+2b. Zn+2c. Fe+2d. Fe+3

Problem

Which of the following metal cations is the best oxidizing agent?

a. Co+2

b. Zn+2

c. Fe+2

d. Fe+3

Solution

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.
