Why Ce4+ behaves as good oxidising agent although being a stable species?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
The formation of Ce4+ is favoured by its noble gas configuration, but it is a strong oxidant reverting to the common +3 state because the Eo value for Ce4+/ Ce3+ is + 1.74 V which is positive.
