1 Ch 20 Electrochemistry: the study of the relationships between electricity and chemical reactions. In electrochemical reactions, electrons are transferred from one species to another. Learning goals and key skills: Identify oxidation, reduction, oxidizing agent, and reducing agent in a chemical equation Complete and balance redox equations using the method of half-reactions. Sketch a voltaic cell and identify its cathode, anode, and the directions that electrons and ions move. Calculate standard emfs (cell potentials), E o cell, from standard reduction potentials. Use reduction potentials to predict whether a redox reaction is spontaneous Relate E o cell to G o and equilibrium constants. Calculate emf under nonstandard conditions Describe to reactions in electrolytic cells Relate the amounts of products and reactants in redox reactions to electrical charge. Review redox reactions: assigning oxidation numbers To keep track of what species loses electrons and what species gains them, we assign oxidation numbers. Assigning oxidation numbers How to determine oxidation numbers 1. Elemental form, each atom has ox. # = 0. Zn O 2 O 3 I 2 S 8 P 4 2. In simple ions, ox. # = charge on ion. -1 for Cl - +2 for Mg The ox. # of F is ALWAYS -1 with all other elements. FeF 3 PF 5 SF 6 OF 2 1

2 Assigning oxidation numbers 4. The ox. # of O is normally -2 (except in the peroxide ion, which has an oxidation number of 1) and the ox. # of H is +1 (except with metals). O is -2 in NO H is +1 in CH 4 O is -1 in Na 2 O 2 H is -1 in CaH 2 5. Algebraic sum of oxidation numbers = 0 for a compound = overall charge for an ion Example Assign the oxidation numbers to each element: SiBr 4 K 3 PO 4 Cu(NO 3 ) 3 Redox reactions ELECTRON TRANSFERS between an electron donor and electron acceptor. Transfer leads to 1. increase in oxidation number = OXIDATION 2. decrease in oxidation number = REDUCTION Oxidizing agent or oxidant: causes the oxidation Reducing agent or reductant: causes the reduction 2

3 Example Label the species that undergo oxidation and reduction. Also identify the oxidizing agent and reducing agent. Cu (s) + 2 AgNO 3 (aq) Cu(NO 3 ) 2 (aq) + 2 Ag (s) Example Label the species that undergo oxidation and reduction. Also identify the oxidizing agent and reducing agent. Reduction Oxidation Cu (s) + 2 AgNO 3 (aq) Cu(NO 3 ) 2 (aq) + 2 Ag (s) Oxidizing agent: Ag in AgNO 3 ; Reducing agent: Cu Electron transfer reactions Essential features: one reactant is oxidized one reactant is reduced the oxidizing agent is reduced the reducing agent is oxidized an element is oxidized if its ox # increases; it is reduced if its ox # decreases. the extent of oxidation and reduction must balance All redox reactions must be balanced for both mass and charge. 3

4 Steps for balancing equations by the method of half-reactions 1. Assign oxidation states. 2. Divide the equation into two half-reactions. 3. Balance each half-reaction as follows: a. Balance elements other than O and H b. Balance O by adding H 2 O c. Balance H by adding H + d. Balance charge by adding e - to the more positive side 4. Multiply by factors so that e - lost = e - gained 5. Add and cancel (check mass & check charge). 6. If in a basic solution, add OH - to neutralize. Balancing redox reactions: using half-reactions Cu (s) + AgNO 3 (aq) Cu(NO 3 ) 2 (aq) + Ag (s) In the above unbalanced reaction, the spectator ion (NO 3- ) is unimportant to the net equation, so let s write the unbalanced net equation. Cu (s) + Ag + (aq) Cu 2+ (aq) + Ag (s) Balancing redox reactions: using half-reactions Cu (s) + Ag + (aq) Cu 2+ (aq) + Ag (s) There are two halves of the reaction: the oxidation half and the reduction half. Cu (s) Cu 2+ (aq) + 2 e - Ag + (aq) + e - Ag (s) 4

5 Balancing redox reactions: using half-reactions Balance the charges and masses to make the full redox reaction Cu (s) Cu 2+ (aq) + 2 e - 2 Ag + (aq) + 2 e - 2 Ag (s) Cu (s) + 2 Ag + (aq) Cu 2+ (aq) + 2 Ag (s) Sometimes it s necessary to add H 2 O and either H + or OH -. Half-Reaction Method Example Consider the reaction between MnO 4 and C 2 O 2 4 : MnO 4 (aq) + C 2 O 2 4 (aq) Mn 2+ (aq) + CO 2 (g) First, we assign oxidation numbers MnO 4 + C 2 O 4 2- Mn 2+ + CO 2 Since the manganese goes from +7 to +2, it is reduced. Since the carbon goes from +3 to +4, it is oxidized. Oxidation Half-Reaction C 2 O 4 2 CO 2 To balance the carbon, we add a coefficient of 2: C 2 O CO 2 The oxygen is now balanced as well. To balance the charge, we must add 2 electrons to the right side. C 2 O CO e 5

6 Reduction Half-Reaction MnO 4 Mn 2+ The manganese is balanced; to balance the oxygen, we must add 4 waters to the right side. MnO 4 Mn H 2 O To balance the hydrogen, we add 8 H + to the left side. 8 H + + MnO 4 Mn H 2 O To balance the charge, we add 5 e to the left side. 5 e + 8 H + + MnO 4 Mn H 2 O Combining the Half-Reactions Now we evaluate the two half-reactions together: C 2 O CO e 5 e + 8 H + + MnO 4 Mn H 2 O To attain the same number of electrons on each side, we will multiply the first reaction by 5 and the second by 2. 5 C 2 O CO e 10 e + 16 H MnO 4 2 Mn H 2 O When we add these together, we get: 10 e + 16 H MnO C 2 O Mn H 2 O + 10 CO e 16 H MnO C 2 O Mn H 2 O + 10 CO 2 Example Iodide will react with permanganate ions to form iodine and manganese (IV) oxide. Write the balanced net ionic equation if the reaction occurs in an acidic solution. 6 I - (aq) + 2 MnO 4- (aq) + 8 H + (aq) 3 I 2 (aq) + 2 MnO 2 (aq) + 4 H 2 O(l) 6

7 Example Do the previous example in a basic solution. Iodide will react with permanganate ions to form iodine and manganese (IV) oxide. If a reaction occurs in basic solution, one can balance it as if it occurred in acid. Once the equation is balanced, add OH to each side to neutralize the H + in the equation and create water in its place. If this produces water on both sides, you might have to subtract water from each side. Two types of electrical cells Voltaic/galvanic cell spontaneous chemical reaction that produces electrical energy Electrolytic cell electrical energy is used for a nonspontaneous chemical reaction Voltaic cells In spontaneous oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions, electrons are transferred and energy is released. We can use that energy to do work if we make the electrons flow through an external device. 7

8 Voltaic cells The oxidation occurs at the anode. The reduction occurs at the cathode. Voltaic cells description When electrons flow from the anode to the cathode, the charges in each beaker would not be balanced and the flow of electrons would stop. Voltaic Cells Therefore, we use a salt bridge, usually a U-shaped tube that contains a salt solution, to keep the charges balanced. Cations move toward the cathode. Anions move toward the anode. 8

9 Voltaic Cells In the cell, electrons leave the anode and flow through the wire to the cathode. As the electrons leave the anode, the cations formed dissolve into the solution in the anode compartment. As the electrons reach the cathode, cations in the cathode are attracted to the now negative cathode. The electrons are taken by the cation, and the neutral metal is deposited on the cathode. anode (oxidation) Zn (s) Zn 2+ (aq) cathode (reduction) Cu 2+ (aq) Cu (s) Electromotive force (emf) Water spontaneously flows one way in a waterfall. Likewise, electrons only spontaneously flow one way in a redox reaction from higher to lower potential energy. Electromotive force (emf) The potential difference between the anode and cathode in a cell is called the electromotive force (emf). It is also called the cell potential (E cell ). Cell potential is measured in volts (V) and it is often called the cell voltage. 1 V = 1 J C 9

10 Standard cell potentials The cell potential at standard conditions can be found through this equation: E cell = E red (cathode) E red (anode) Because cell potential is based on the potential energy per unit of charge, it is an intensive property. Standard Hydrogen Electrode 2 H + (aq, 1M) + 2 e H 2 (g, 1 atm) By definition, the reduction potential for hydrogen is 0 V: Using a SHE 10

11 Cell Potentials For the oxidation in this cell, E red = 0.76 V For the reduction, E red = V E cell = E red (cathode) E red (anode) = V ( 0.76 V) = V Standard reduction potentials Cr 3+ (aq) + 3e - Cr(s) Standard reduction potentials 11

12 Oxidizing and reducing agents The greater the difference between the two, the greater the voltage of the cell. E cell > 0 product favored E cell < 0 reactant favored Standard reduction potentials 1. All potentials are for reduction reactions. 2. The more positive E, the better the oxidizing ability. 3. The more negative E, the more likely the reverse (oxidation) reaction will occur. 4. When the reaction is reversed, the sign changes. 5. NW-SE rule: reaction of the upper left with the lower right is product favored. 6. The sign of the half-reaction potential is in reference to the SHE (H 2 (g, 1 bar) /H + (aq, 1 M) standard cell). 7. Potentials depend on the nature of reactants and products and NOT on the amounts. Example Draw the voltaic cell, use cell notation to describe the voltaic cell, and calculate the standard EMF for a cell containing cadmium and silver electrodes. Ag + (aq) + e - Ag(s) Cd 2+ (aq) + 2 e - Cd(s) E = V E = V 12

13 Free Energy G for a redox reaction: G = nfe Under standard conditions, G = nfe where n is the number of moles of electrons transferred, and F is the Faraday constant. 1 F = 96,485 C/mol = 96,485 J/V-mol Calculate G for Example 2 Cr (s) + 3 Pb 2+ (aq) 2 Cr 3+ (aq) + 3 Pb (s) from Appendix E and supplemental sources Cr 3+ (aq) + 3 e - Cr (s) E = V Pb 2+ (aq) + 2 e - Pb (s) E = V Nernst Equation G = G + RT lnq This means nfe = nfe + RT lnq Dividing both sides by nf, we get the Nernst equation: E = E RT nf ln Q 13

14 Nernst equation: cell potentials at nonstandard conditions E = E RT nf ln Q E = E RT nf log Q at 25 C E = E n log Q Example Calculate the emf for the following cell at 25 C. Cr (s) Cr 3+ (aq, 1.00 M) Pb 2+ (aq, M) Pb (s) Example Calculate the emf for the following reaction at 25 C. 4 Fe 2+ (aq) + O 2 (g) + 4H + (aq) 4 Fe 3+ (aq) + 2H 2 O(l) a) Under standard conditions b) When [Fe 2+ ] = 1.3 M, [Fe 3+ ] = M, P O2 = 0.50 atm, and the ph in the cathode half-cell is

15 Concentration cells A cell could be created that has the same substance at both electrodes. E cell would be 0, but Q would not be. E will not be 0 as long as the concentrations are different. Applications Hydrogen fuel cells 15
