Which of the following species is the strongest oxidizing agent under standard state conditions?
a. Ag+(aq)
b. H2(g)
c. H+(aq)
d. Cl2(g)
e. Al3+(aq)

An oxidizing agent is a substance that gains electrons in a redox chemical reaction.

I think Al3+ has a very high electron affinity and should pull electrons to it in a chemical reaction.

Is Al3+ the best choice for this problem?
