Lesson 24 Example 24-1 Compare the ε o values for Fe 3+ to Fe 2+ and Fe(CN) 6 3- to Fe(CN) 6 4- . On this basis, which ion, Fe 3+ or Fe 2+ , forms a stronger complex with CN - ? ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _ Solution: Data : Fe 3+ + e - Fe 2+ ε o = 0.77 Fe(CN) 6 4- Fe(CN) 6 3- + e - ε o = -0.361 Combining the two half-cell reactions: Fe 3+ + Fe(CN) 6 4- Fe(CN) 6 3- + Fe 2+ ∆ ε o = 0.409 spontaneous direction 1
