In this post, we will understand what redox reactions are, we will define Oxidation, Reduction, and Redox. Then we will focus on oxidation numbers and the rules for assigning oxidation numbers.
Redox (reduction-oxidation) reactions involve electron transfer and include all chemical reactions in which atoms have changed their oxidation state. Oxidation state is the state of an element or ion in a compound with regard to the electrons gained or lost by the element or ion in the reaction. In many systems, the reactions occur in […]
