Standard reduction potential

  1. Nov 22, 2016 #1
    Good afternoon, i have been trying to find without success the standard reduction potential for the next semireaction:

    2CO2 +2e- <-> (C2O4)^2-
    Could someone please help me with that or tell me where could i find this potencial?. Thanks

    Inczédy lists it as -0.64 V, giving W.M. Latimer's Oxidation potentials as a source.

    2CO2 + 2H+ + 2e- = H2C24 (electrode potential is -0.49V)
