    Do sulfates in solution disable reduction of compound with SnCl2?

    I use SnCl2 (from brumer) as a reducing agent. However, i'm not sure if sulphates present are a problem and if they disable reduction of the ions that I want to reduce? Do sulphates react to SnCl2?

    Reduction potential of H2O2 = nonsense

    Hello, I've always been puzzled by H2O2 nominal reduction potential because it is not compatible with many reactions where H2O2 actually behaves as a reductant. Taking this as reference (there are more precise ones, but H2O2 is ranked as one of the highest in all tables anyways), the reduction...

    Are my oxidation, reduction and balanced equation correct?

    I just want to know if the following makes any sense. If it doesn, what am I doing wrong? Oxidation: Mg(s) → Mg2+(aq) +*2e Reduction: Cu2+(aq) + 2e → Cu(s) Balanced equation: 2 Cu3+(aq) + Mg(s) → 2 Cu(s) + 2 Mg2+(aq) Thanks guys in advance!

    Voltaic Cell Lab

    Hello I need help. I have done a lab on how temperature affect the cell potential of a voltaic cell. I have changed the temperature and graphed cell potential against temperature. I am not sure what the slope shows. Can anyone help me please. I looked at it by doing the Nernst equation which...

    Propane and bromine equation oxidation reduction?

    Propane and bromine equation oxidation reduction? propane is shaken vigorously with a solution of bromine water in the presence of uV, its asking for the oxidation and reduction equations but it didn't work out. I can get the full equation bu the oxidation numbers don't work out with the carbons.
