How is iodine oxidized to iodate ion by nitric acid?
With conc. nitric acid...........
Elemental iodine is oxidized up to iodate,
And nitric acid is reduced to
And in the usual way we cross-multiply the individual redox equations, so that electrons do not appear in the final reaction.
Which looks balanced with respect to mass and charge to me. Is it? All care taken but no responsibility admitted!
