The hydrolysis of Sn2+ has been studied In various Ionic media (NaNO3, NaCl, and artificial seawater) from 0.1 to 1 M and 20 °C by using differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry. The shift In the potential of the stripped Sn2+ was determined as a function of pH (2-11) at a Sn4+ concentration of 5.4 X 10-7 M. These results were used to determine β1, β2, and β3 for the hydrolysis of Sn2+ and β1 and β2 for the formation of chloro, bromo, and sulfate complexes. Our values for the hydrolysis of chloro and bromo complexes of Sn2+ are in reasonable agreement with the literature values. The distribution or speclatlon of various species of tin(II) In NaNO3, NaCl, and artificial seawater were determined from the calculated stability constants.
