C6H12O6 (aq) 2 CO2 (g) + 2 CH3CH2OH (aq)

This is an oxidation-reduction (redox) reaction:

4 C0 + 8 e- 4 C-II (reduction)

2 C0 - 8 e- 2 CIV (oxidation)

C6H12O6 is both an oxidizing and a reducing agent (disproportionation (dismutation)).

This is a gas evolution reaction, CO2 is the formed gas.

Reactants:

  • C6H12O6
