11th Class Chemistry Redox Reactions

  • question_answer 30) What sorts of information can you draw from the following reaction?

    Answer:

    In \[{{(CN)}_{2}}\], oxidation state of carbon will be: \[2x-6=0,\,\] \[x=+3\] Similarly in\[C{{N}^{-}}\], \[x-3=-1,\] \[x=+2\] \[CN{{O}^{-}},\] \[x-3-2=-1,\] \[x=+4\] The reaction shows disproportionation in which cyanogen \[{{(CN)}_{2}}\] is reduced to \[(C{{N}^{-}})\] and oxidised to \[(C{{N}^{-}})\]ion.
