A question was closed as duplicate:
However, the question it now points to has no answer:
The old question was posed almost 4 years ago, has a score of zero (zero upvotes, zero downvotes) and no answers. If it had a score less than zero or had been closed, it would have been automatically deleted, but it has squeezed by. The two questions are almost identical, so having both doesn't make sense.
However, in the current state, it is unlikely that the person who asked (or folks who google this question) will get an answer on Chemistry StackExchange any time soon.
There is another question about standard states that I posed some time ago, which asks the same question in a more general way, with the understanding that some standard states are hypothetical ones:
This question has an answer that I found helpful.
What is the best course of action in this case (or is it fine to just move on)?
For completeness, there is a related meta question with a scenario where the newer question is answered and the older question is not: What should happen to the unanswered duplicates after a newer duplicate of that question is answered?
