Question #10670
What is the oxidation number for elements in group 14?
Expert's answer
Group 14, or group IVA, contains C, Si, Ge, Sn and Pb. Carbon can every
oxidation number from -4 to +4, as can silicon. The most common oxidation states
of Ge, Sn and Pb are +2 and +4, Ge can also have +1 and +3, but these don't have
negative oxidation states since they are metals.
