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 that 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 questions are
- 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?
