Class 12 Chemistry Metallurgy General Principles and Processes of Isolation of Elements



Carbon reduction process is not commercially applicable for which of the following set of oxides to extract the respective metal?

(I)   (II)   (III)  (IV)  (V)
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
,
Correct answer: (c) 
Solution: Carbon reduction process is used to reduce less electropositive metals. and  have high electropositivity. 


It is possible at high temperatures, so it is not used for commercial purposes.

Hence, cannot be extracted from oxides through the carbon reduction process.
