Why is the value of standard electrode potential of Mn, Co,Ni,Zn more negative than expected?
Is the standard electrode potential more negative than expected for cobalt? (according to graph pg217 NCERT chemistry)

Metals will easily lose electrons and oxidised.
Negative electrode potential value means oxidised species is more stable than reduced species.
Mn and Zn have half filled and completely filled d orbitals. It gives them stability and not get reduced.
Ni has high negative hydration enthalpy.
Therefore the value of standard electrode potential of Mn, Zn, Ni is more negative.

- Electrochemical series are the series of element in which the elements are arranged in ........order of their reducing strength
- why does copper have positive electrode potential? it has same inthalpy of ionisation(2) as nickel(-2121) so it should also have a negative value
- The discharge potential of Chloride ions is less than hydroxide ions . what does this line mean and why chloride has less discharge potential.
