Hi I have a question I was wondering if y'all could clear up. Lets say I have two metal cations, Iron (III) and Manganese (II). Will binding them to an anionic ligand lower their reduction potentials (making each a better redundant) and if so why? Is it because the anionic charge of the ligand stabilizes the positive charge of the metals? What if the ligand binds with a high coordination number (say 5 or 6). Will that further reduce the reduction potential because now the entire complex has a negative charge and is better able to donate electrons (ie good reluctant)?
