Question

What are the oxidation numbers of the underlined elements in each of the following and how do you rationalise your results?

CH3CH2OH

Solution 1

By conventional method O.N of C  in CH_3CH_2OH = 

or 2x + 6(+1) + 1(-2) = 0 or x = -2

Solution 2

CH3CH2OH

2(x) + 6(+1) + 1(-2) = 0 or 2x + 4 = 0

or x = -2

Hence, the O.N. of C is –2.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
