    Zn2+ + 2e- <=> Zn -0.76V
    Fe2+ + 2e- <=> Fe -0.44V
    Cr2O72+ + 14H+ + 6e- <=> 2Cr3+ + 7H2O +1.33V

    strongest reducing agent is the species most likely to be oxidised. The equation with the most negative value is most likely to go in the oxidation direction therefore the strongest reducing agent would be Zn.
