Table 10.2 gives the electrode reactions and standard electrochemical potentials (i.e., the half-cell Vs SHE, all ion concentrations = 1 M, all gases at 1 atm) of five common water-impurity species and three dissolved species that influence the stability of the impurities.
Example: Compare the effectiveness of nitrate ion for removing ethanol from water to that of oxygen.
Nitrate ion: The overall reaction is:
This reaction is the following combination of half-cell reactions A and 1:
