Which Transition Elements Show Highest Oxidation State?
Manganese shows a maximum number of oxidation states in the transition elements. But if we consider all the transition elements the highest oxidation is shown by the Ruthenium (Ru) and Osmium (Os) in the table i.e., +8. All the transition elements show multiple oxidation states except the first and last elements.
What is the Oxidation State of Transition Metal?
The oxidation state is the number of electrons that an element loses, gain, or shares with another element to make a bond. Transition Metals show various oxidation states because they have various numbers of electrons in the valence shell.
