[SOLVED] paper chromatography 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Which reagent is the best to develop Mn+2? Briefly explain. 2. Relevant equations Mn^+2 + 2OH- -> Mn(OH)_2 (s)(pale pink) Mn^+2 + C_2O_4^-2 -> MnC2O4 (s)(pale pink) 2Mn^+2 + [Fe(CN)_6]^-4 -> Mn_2Fe(CN)_6 (s pale green) 2Mn^+2 + 5(BiO_3)^-1 + 14H+ -> 2(MnO_4)^-1 (aq deep purple) + 5Bi^+3 +7H_2O 3. The attempt at a solution ( _ represents subscripts H_2O represents water. ) At first I thought the second choice would be correct because it uses ions that are not found in the experiment at all, however now I am starting to think it is the last choice because it's product is an aqueous and not a solid, I would appreciate some feedback, the thing stopping me from thinking the last choice is correct is that it creates 2 other products.
