What is the oxidation state of Mn in Mn2O3?

The oxidation number is also called oxidation state is the total number of electrons that an atom either gains or loses to form a chemical bond with another atom.

  • Manganese(III) oxide is a chemical compound with the formula Mn2O3.
  • Manganese oxide minerals have been used for thousands of years—by the ancients for pigments and to clarify glass

Since the oxidation state of oxygen is -2

Then assuming x is the oxidation state of Mn

2x + 3 (-2) = 0

2x = 6

or x = +3
