Grade 11 chemistry
« on: August 27, 2013, 11:54:28 pm »
C6H8O6 + I2 ---> C6H6O6 + 2Iā€“ + 2H

hey in this reaction what is the conjugate base and conjugate acid and also does the bronsted lowry theory, arrhenius, lewis or whatever apply to this?
Another thing is that i am asked to provide background information on a report for an eei (extended experimental investigation), i know its different to an abstract but i don't know how to write it...

First of all that H should be H+ to correctly balance the equation ;) IIRC Lewis does not apply here because there are no lone pairs. For the acid/base part, you know what an acid does. It donates protons. So you'll have
C6H8O6 ā†’ C6H6O6 + H+
2H+ + 2I- ā†’ 2 H+I-
The acid base pair would be C6H8O6 / C6H6O6
For the report, I can't help with that.
I hope I remember this correctly, it's been a while since I've done this so I may be wrong.
