Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Jason on Tuesday, March 10, 2009 at 3:40pm.

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)

I think Ag+(aq) will transfer electons sooner than the other four choices.
BECAUSE:

H2 will hold on it its elcctrons because the 1st shell is filled and very close to the nuclei.

H+ does not have any electrons to transfer.

Cl2 has a filled outer shell.

Al3+ has already lost 3 electrons and the remaining electrons are attracted by the protons even more.

Is my choice of Ag+(aq) correct?
