Complete and balance the following equation.

MnO4^‾ (aq) + CH3OH(aq) ¨ Mn^2+(aq) + HCO2H(aq) (acidic solution)

I KNOW ITS a redox, so i followed the steps and got: 4MnO4^- (aq) + 5CH3OH (aq) + 11H2O (l) + 12H^+ (aq) ¨ 4Mn^2+ (aq) + 5HCO2H (aq)

can someone please help

  • CHEM AP -

    I believe the correct balanced equation would be
    4MnO4-(aq)+5Ch3OH(aq)+12H+(aq)-->4Mn2+(aq)+5HCO2H(aq)+11H2O(l)
