. What is the oxidation state of manganese in each of the following substances?

a. MnCl2

c. MnO2

b. KMnO4

d. Mn(C2H3O2)3

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The oxidation states of manganese in MnCl2 should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

The oxidation state is defined as the charge(s) that an atom would have when electron(s) were transferred completely from a molecule or ion.

Explanation

The oxidation state is defined as the charge(s) that an atom would have when electron(s) were transferred completely from a molecule or ion.

While determining the oxidation state of binary compound, the element with greater electronegativity is assigned with negative value of oxidation state which is equal to the charge as an anion in ionic compounds and element whose oxidation states are fixed are assigned. For compounds with no charge, the sum of oxidation states is zero...
