Description and uses:

Elemental zinc is a fairly strong reducing agent and find use as such in both organic and inorganic chemistry.

The element is a precursor to many of it salts, as it dissolves easily in dilute solutions of the corresponding acids.

With dilute sulphuric acid (H2SO4) it finds use in laboratory hydrogen generators:

Zn(s) + H2SO4(aq) → ZnSO4(aq) + H2(g)

+2 is basically zinc’s only stable oxidation state.
