1 Chpater 4 Oxidation-Reduction Yes, GER!What are Red-Ox Reactions?Some Examples of Reduction and Oxidation Reactions involve the Loss of Electrons and the Gain of Electrons by Atoms and Ions.Remember: “LEO the Lion says _________”GERLoss of Electrons is Oxidation Gain of Electrons is ReductionHow are Metal Atoms different from Metal Ions?Metal “ATOMS are Solid”* and Tend to Lose Electrons (LEO)*Note: 1. Atoms are Mostly Empty Space! 2. Mercury is a Liquid at room temp.Metal IONS are (aq) and Tend to Gain Electrons (GER)*Some Ions can LEO moreHow is the Tendency to Gain and Lose Electrons Determined?Test Solid Metal Atoms with Ions in Aqueous Solutions Hyperlink Create an Activity Series for Metal Atoms.Zinc Metal and Oxygen Hyperlink
2 The Activity SeriesWhat is the “Activity” of Metals? What do Metal Atoms Tend to do?Biggest LosersMetal Atoms tend to lose valence electrons.Why are Lithium, Rubidium and Potassium at the Top of the Activity Series?Alkali Metal Atoms tend to Lose Electrons Easily.Why are Gold, Silver and Copper at the Bottom of the Activity Series?The “Coinage” Metals do not tend to undergo Oxidation.What Combinations of Atoms and Ions tend to result in RedOx Reactions?Solid Metal Atoms from “Above” with Aqueous Metal Ions from “Below.”Can Mg2+(aq) react spontaneously with Zinc(s)?No Reaction. Ions can only Gain Electrons from Atoms Above them in the Activity Series.Can Al3+(aq) Oxidize Calcium?Strongest GainersYes. Al3+ can Gain Electrons from Ca or Ca will Lose Electrons to Al3+
3 Reduction Potentials What is a Reduction Potential? Reduction Potential is the tendency of a species to gain electrons measured in Volts.How are Reduction Potentials related to the Activity Series?The most Active species (loss of electron) is at the bottom of the Reduction Potentials (gain of electrons).What are Reduction Potentials used for?Reduction Potentials are used to predict RedOx reactions and to determine Voltage of a Volatic cell (like a battery).
4 Rules for Assigning Oxidation Numbers * If Charge is 2+, then Ox. No. is +2What are Oxidation Numbers (Oxidation States)?Assigned Values for keeping track of LEO and GER.An Oxidation Number can be similar to the Charge of an Ion* or it can be an exaggeration of the “Ionic Character” of a Covalent Bond.What changes in Oxidation Numbers indicate Oxidation and Reduction?A species is Reduced when its Oxidation Number is Reduced!!An Oxidation Number Increases during Oxidation!!Rules for Assigning Oxidation Numbers1. Atoms in Elements = 0 Always!!2. In Compounds: Monatomic Ions = Charge Fluorine = Oxygen = -2* Hydrogen = +1*23. Assign All Others so that Sum of Ox #’s in a Compound is Zero. Sum of Ox. #’s in a Polyatomic Ion is Same as Charge.*1 Except: H2O2 and OF2 Why?*2 Except: Metal Hydrides Ex. NaH
5 Practice With Oxidation Numbers What is the Oxidation Number of Chromium in Dichromate Ion Cr2O72-Total of Elements+12-14=-2Individual Atoms+6-2Cr2O72-Identify the “Ionic Character”(Polarity) in the Covalent Bonds below:Compare the Partial Charges to the Assigned Oxidation Numbers.+1-2For each covalent bond determine whether an atom “feels” like it is: gaining (-1), losing (+1) or neutral (0) regarding shared electrons.-2-3+1+1+3Review: Add 3 H2O molecules forming Hydrogen Bonds. Use dotted lines for Hydrogen Bonds.+1
6 C in C2O42- S in HSO4- N in NO3- N in NH4+ Cr in CrO42- Cl in ClO3- Determine the Oxidation Number of the following:C in C2O42-S in HSO4-N in NO3-N in NH4+Cr in CrO42-Cl in ClO3-C in HCO3-S in S2O32-+3+6+5-3+6+5+4+2
7 Oxidation-Reduction Reactions What 3 things must always be Balanced in a Chemical Equation?Mass, Energy, and Charge must always balance.Balancing the Charge in a Simple Red-Ox Reaction:1. Assign Oxidation Numbers. 2. Identify and Write the Oxidation and Reduction Half-Reactions. 3. Balance the number of Electrons Exchanged. 4. Combine the Balanced Reactions.Ex. 1. Write the Reaction that occurs when aluminum metal is added to an aqueous solution of copper(II)chloride.+2+3Al (s) + Cu2+ (aq) Cu (s) + Al3+ (aq)( ) x 2Oxidation: Al 3e- + Al3+Identify the Oxidizing Agent and the Reducing Agent.( ) x 3Reduction: Cu2+ + 2e- Cu2Al + 3Cu2+ 3Cu + 2Al3+Oxdizing Agent is Cu2+(aq) and Reducing Agent is Al (s)
8 Voltaic Cells Identifying the Main Parts of a Voltaic Cell How can Red-Ox Reactions be used to Generate an Electric Current?View the animation at Hyperlink 1Construct a Voltaic Cell at Hyperlink 2Additional animation of Zn/Cu Cell at Hyperlink 3Identifying the Main Parts of a Voltaic CellThe Cathode and Anode:The Electrode where Reduction occurs is the Cathode. “Trust the Red Cat.” Also “Trust An Ox” for the Anode.The Flow of Electrons:Always From LEO to GER!!The Charge of the Electrodes:Electrons Flow from Neg. (-) to Pos. (+)The Salt Bridge:Allows Migration of Ions to Maintain Neutral Solutions.Voltmeter Use this diagram to Build and Label a Voltaic Cell
9 Calculating the Voltage of a Voltaic Cell How can one use Reduction Potentials to predict RedOx reactions and calculate the Voltage of a cell?1. Identify the atoms that could loose electrons and the ions that could gain electrons.* (Recall exceptions)2. Search the table from the top for one of the ions. Write the reaction (gain of electrons) and the voltage.3. Search the table from the bottom for the atoms. Write the reaction backwards (loss of electrons) and reverse the sign of the voltage.4. Simply Combine the voltages. Do NOT multiply them by any factor. Positive Voltage indicates a spontaneous reaction. Neg…….
10 A Copper/Zinc Voltaic Cell -+Why do the Ions in the Salt Bridge Migrate as they do?K+ Replaces Cu+2(aq) “lost” as Cu(s).2 Cl- Cancels the Zn2+ Produced in Ox.Determine the Pos. and Neg. Electrodes.
