The standard potential for the reaction: Zn 2+ + 2e- = Zn is -0.763V. Based on this information, is Zn is a good or poor reducing agent? Explain.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 22, 2018, 1:11 am ad1c9bdddf
Generally when the standard potential is a negative value then the material is likely to be a stronger reducing agent.
The solution provides detailed explanations and answer for the problem.
