B) Fe2+. C) Br -. D) Al3+. E) Al.

Problem

Consider the following standard reduction potentials in acid solution:

                                                            E°(V)
Al3+ + 3e- → Al(s)                                - 1.66
AgBr(s) + e- → Ag(s) + Br -                   + 0.07
Sn4+ + 2e- → Sn2+                              + 0.14
Fe3+ + e- → Fe2+                                 + 0.77

The strongest oxidizing agent among those shown above is 

A) Fe3+.

B) Fe2+.

C) Br -.

D) Al3+.

E) Al.
