CHCl3 + MnO4- = Cl2 + CO2 + Mn+2
Balance the above with half reactions in acidic medium.

For the above reaction, can you please show the half reactions...which is getting oxidised...both C and Cl's oxidation # are changing showing both getting oxidised,.how is this possible? Can u please do the steps...I may have something wrong Many thanks

  1. I gave you the two balanced half reactions yesterday. Why do I need to this again? C goes from +2 on the left to +4 on the right. Cl is -1 on the left and 0 on the right. Both are oxidized. Nothing wrong with that.
