The electrochemical series
When comparing two redox equilibria, it is conventional to show the electrons on the left hand side. Shown
like this we can predict that a reaction may take place between:
× The species on the right hand side of the redox equilibrium with the…

Will a reaction actually take place?
Remember that these equilibrium processes in aqueous conditions.
× Predictions can be made about the equilibrium position but not about the reaction rate, which may be
extremely slow because of high activation energy.
× The actual conditions used for a reaction…
