# E0 Value for Mn3+ Mn2+ Couple is Much More Positive than that for Cr3-/ Cr2-. - Chemistry

Sum

E0 value for  Mn3+ Mn2+ couple is much more positive than that for Cr3-/ Cr2-.

#### Solution

Much larger 3rd ionisation energy of Mn (where the required change is d5 to d4) is mainly responsible for this.
Mn3+ =

Mn2+ =   → Half filled (more stable)
