Consider the following half-reactions:
MnO4- + 8H+ + 5e- --> Mn2+ + 4H2O
NO3- + 4H+ + 3e- --> NO + 2H2O

Predict whether NO3- ions will oxidize Mn2+ to MnO4- under standard-state conditions.

  • chemistry -

    Look up Eo for MnO4^- to Mn.
    Look up NO3^- to NO.
    Add the two.If the total is + the answer is yes; negative the answer is no.

  • chemistry -

    no
