Question

Arrange the following

NaH, MgH2 and H2O in order of increasing reducing property.

Solution

Ionic hydrides are strong reducing agents. NaH can easily donate its electrons. Hence, it is most reducing in nature.

Both, MgH2 and H2O are covalent hydrides. H2O is less reducing than MgH2 since the bond dissociation energy of H2O is higher than MgH2.

Hence, the increasing order of the reducing property is H2O < MgH2 < NaH.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
