Are hydroxide and H+ available to balance redox reactions even in neutral solutions? I know that these species are found in neutral water, but in small, equal amounts. Is there enough of each species present to use them to balance half reactions?
Well if it's a neutral solution, that should mean the redox reaction wouldn't be using or creating any H+ or OH-. If we had to balance a redox reaction in neutral solution, we would probably be given something like this where H+ or OH- ions wouldn't be needed: Cu+(aq)+Fe(s)→Fe3+(aq)+Cu(s)
