2Li^++2I^-==>2Li+I2
would 2I^- be oxidised and 2Li be reduced reaction?

  • chemistry 12 -

    Write the half reactions so you can tell which is losing and which gaining electrons.
    Li^+ + e ==> Li
    2I^- ==> I2 + 2e
    Li is gaining electrons which makes it reduced (and the oxidizing agent).
    I^- loses electrons which makes it oxidized (and the reducing agent).
