Answer:

#TcI_2(s) + nH_2O rarr [Tc(OH_2)_n]^(2+)(aq) + 2I^(-)(aq)#

Explanation:

I am guessing that #Tc(II)# has an equivalent coordination chemistry to #Mn^(2+)#. All isotopes of #Tc# are unstable, and as a result, its chemistry is very under-developed. The very name #"technetium"# means made by the hand.
