• # question_answer5) Which of the following species, do not show the disproportionation reaction and why? $Cl{{O}^{-}},ClO_{2}^{-},ClO_{3}^{-}$and$ClO_{4}^{-}$ Also write reaction for each species that disproportionates.

$ClO_{4}^{-}$ does not disproportionate because it has chlorine in maximum oxidation state of +7, i.e., it does not show the process of oxidation. Disproportionation of other species may be given as $\overset{+1}{\mathop{3Cl{{O}^{-}}}}\,\to \overset{-1}{\mathop{2C{{l}^{-}}}}\,+\overset{+5}{\mathop{ClO_{3}^{-}}}\,$ $\overset{+3}{\mathop{6ClO_{2}^{-}}}\,\to \overset{+5}{\mathop{4ClO_{3}^{-}}}\,+\overset{-1}{\mathop{2C{{l}^{-}}}}\,$ $\overset{{}}{\mathop{4ClO_{3}^{-}}}\,\to \overset{-1}{\mathop{C{{l}^{-}}}}\,+\overset{-7}{\mathop{3ClO_{4}^{-}}}\,$
