21. How would you account for the following:

(i) Of the species, is strongly reducing while manganese(III) is strongly oxidising.

(ii) Cobalt(II) is stable in aqueous solution but in the presence of complexing reagents it is easily oxidised.

(iii) The configuration is very unstable in ions.

22. What is meant by ‘disproportionation’? Give two examples of disproportionation reaction in aqueous solution.


Cr(V) is oxidized to Cr(VI) and reduced to Cr(III).


Mn (VI) is oxidized to Mn (VII) and reduced to Mn (IV).

23. Which metal in the first series of transition metals exhibits +1 oxidationstate most frequently and why?

24. Calculate the number of unpaired electrons in the following gaseous ions: and . Which one of these is the most stable in aqueous solution?

25. Give examples and suggest reasons for the following features of the transition metal chemistry:

(i) The lowest oxide of transition metal is basic, the highest is amphoteric/acidic.

(ii) A transition metal exhibits highest oxidation state in oxides and fluorides.

(iii) The highest oxidation state is exhibited in oxoanions of a metal.

26. Indicate the steps in the preparation of:

(i) from chromite ore.

(ii) from pyrolusite ore.
