The reduction behavior of mendelevium (Md) was studied using a flow electrolytic chromatography apparatus. By application of the appropriate potentials on the chromatography column, the more stable Md3+ is reduced to Md2+. The reduction potential of the Md3+ + e- → Md2+ couple was determined to be -0.16 ± 0.05 V versus a normal hydrogen electrode.
