    An oxidation-reduction (redox) reaction is a chemical reaction, and it involves a transfer in electrons between two species. In chemistry, the species are referred to as a set of atoms, molecules, or ions with the same chemical formula. (Khan Academy, 2017) There are many types of reactions that include combustion, synthesis, corrosion, and respiration. The process of an oxidation-reduction reaction occurs when an element is being oxidized and reduction reaction will also occur at the same time.

    more beneficial compounds than either oolong or black tea. Tea is so powerful in fighting disease because the polyphenolic compounds it contains work as antioxidants. There are thousands of antioxidants compounds that help to inhibit the oxidation reactions caused by free radicals. The antioxidants latch onto free oxygen particles in the body and prevent them from doing damage to cells or tissue. The most prevalent antioxidant in green tea is a compound called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (Voelker

    Introduction For this Module, I chose to explain and elucidate the topic, “Oxidation-Reduction Reaction” also known as Red-Ox Reaction not just because it is required for us to elaborate the most complicated matter for us, but also for the reason that I wanted to improve my understanding and comprehension regarding this topic. I really had a difficult time especially during assessments because I wasn’t a hundred percent sure that my answers were correct—I even had questions left out unanswered. I

    electrodes. These reactions can be shown using "Half - Equation". Below, I have shown them using the example of Lead Bromide. [IMAGE]The lead bromide is separated into molten lead and Bromide. PbBr(l) Pb(l) + Br²(g) When lead Bromide is melted, the ions are free to move towards the oppositely charged electrode, because Lead Bromide is an ionic substance. [IMAGE]When the positive lead ions move to the negative electrode, they gain electrons in a reduction reaction: Pb²+ + 2e- Pb

    Mitochondrion make use of a process known as oxidation to make fat acids and pyruvate acid into (indirectly) ATP and Pi (inorganic phosphate). The process goes as follows: 1)      Oxidation of pyruvate acid into acetyl coenzyme A. 2)      Oxidation of fat acids into acetyl coenzyme A. 3)     Oxidation of acetyl coenzymes from step one and two into CO2 and NADH2. 4)      Oxidation of NADH2 by oxygen forming water. 5)      Synthesis of ATP coupled to NADH2 oxidation by process of oxidative phosphorylation

    Hydrolysis of Oxoanions Nonmetals in positive oxidation states do not exist in aqueous solution as cations but rather as hydroxides or oxides. These species often act as oxo acids which ionize to form oxoanions in solution. The general form of an oxoanion is MOxy-. Since these oxoanions are quite different in their properties, Z2/r ratios for nonmetal cations do not give accurate predictions of their chemical behavior. A different approach is needed to determine what these elements will do when they

    lesson “Reduction-Oxidation Reaction” really challenged my comprehension and computation skills in many ways. The first one is the complexity of instructions that are needed to be followed in order to arrive at the corresponding answer for a particular reaction. I basically confused the oxidation and reduction half reaction wherein I don’t know what elements will be reduced and oxidized. One of the things that I’ve confused is that I’ve mistaken the monoatomic charges for the oxidation numbers, wherein

    Oxidation of Cyclohexanol to Cyclohexanone The oxidation of cyclohexanol to cyclohexanone involves the removal of hydrogen from the OH group. After separation and purification, an Infrared Spectrum will be run to determine the composition of the recovered material. Infrared Spectroscopy is a very powerful technique used in the determination of molecular structure and the identification of unknown organic materials. The infrared spectrum yields direct information about the presence or absence

    Respiration can be defined as the oxidation of the end products of glycolysis with the storage of the energy in the form of ATP. Cellular respiration occurs when oxygen is available, and the products are carbon dioxide and water. There are three main pathways in the cellular respiration process. These are: pyruvate oxidation, the citric acid cycle, and the respiratory chain. Pyruvate oxidation in eukaryotic cells occurs inside the mitochondrion in the inner membrane, and in prokaryotes on the inner

    Definition-corrosion, rust, oxidation Corrosion is the atmospheric oxidation of metals. Rusting is essentially a process of oxidation in which iron combines with water and oxygen to form rust. Rust is the reddish-brown crust that forms on the surface of iron. Rust, a chemical compound, is a hydrated ferric oxide Fe2O3·nH2O, where n is usually 11/2. The chemical mechanism of rusting is not fully known, but is thought to involve oxidation of metallic iron to ferrous ion, (Fe++) and reaction of the ferrous ion
