Question 15

Describe the oxidising action of potassium dichromate and write the ionicequations for its reaction with:

(i) iodide

(ii) iron

(II) solution and

(iii) H2S

Answer

K2Cr2O7 acts as a very strong oxidising agent in the acidic medium.

K2Cr2O7    +    4H2SO4   →    K2SO4   + Cr(SO4)3  +  4H2O   +  3[O]   

K2Cr2O7 takes up electrons to get reduced and acts as an oxidising agent. The reaction of K2Cr2Owith other iodide, iron (II) solution, and H2S are given below.
