Redox Chemistry Synthlet
Synthlets are small software applications – applets – that use simple theories, models & techniques to predict the synthesis of small molecules. Predict the outcome of redox reactions with this Synthlet. Select oxidising agents and reducing agents from the drop boxes below:

Oxidising Agent, Reduction Reaction         Reducing Agent, Oxidation Reaction                                       
                                              & Help
Oxidising agent gains electron(s): reduction reaction    Cl2   →   Cl   E° = +1.36
      1         +        2          2
Reducing agent releases electron(s): oxidation reaction    Na   →   Na+   E° = -2.71
      1          1         +        1
The Galvanic Cell Wikipedia

Rule: The reaction will proceed in a forward direction, from left to right, if the cell potential E°cell is net positive.

Sodium, the reducing agent, is oxidised to Sodium ion by Chlorine
and Chlorine, the oxidising agent, is reduced to Chloride ion by Sodium.
