Activity series of metals

Jump to navigationJump to search
  • A listing of metals (and hydrogen) in order of decreasing activity.
  • The activity or electromotive series of metals is a listing of the metals in decreasing order of their reactivity with hydrogen-ion sources such as water and acids. In the reaction with a hydrogen-ion source, the metal is oxidized to a metal ion, and the hydrogen ion is reduced to H2. The ordering of the activity series can be related to the standard reduction potential of a metal cation. Source: Western Oregon University
