I am working on metal and its ion. The problem is, I would like to know whether the metal has been converted to its ionic form or not.
The hypothesis for the analysis is: Metals are good conductors and ions possess redox potential. Therefore, by measuring the conductance and red-ox potential is it possible to differentiate whether I have metal or metal ion.
The question is
- Based on the hypothesis, can I expect a positive result?
- Apart from this, is there any other technique where I can qualitatively / quantitatively measure metal and its ion?
