"complete" activity series
« on: June 03, 2006, 08:09:06 PM »

Good evening fellow nerds!  I'm having that darndest time finding an activity series that isn't abbreviated.  There was one posted on the classroom wall fifteen years ago that had multiple entries for each element, one for each oxidation state.  One such would be mightily handy right now.  Does anybody have a lead on one?

IMHO what you are looking for is not activity series, but table of oxidation-reduction potentials.

Yes, I think that is what I'm rambling about.  Thank you.  I looked up "redox table" and got something a bit more resolved than maybe a dozen elements.  Now I also have ranking numbers that look like (hmm, muddy brain- could it have been?) electronegativity.

I've only had one quarter of chemistry, and it was long ago.  Is this what I'm looking for?  For reactions, I think I'm looking for predictability in double replacements that are exothermic- all downhill.

Check your library. Data books and the appendices of any good inorganic/physical chemistry textbook will have tables of reduction potentials. eg Atkins' Physical chemistry.
