Redox Reactions is also called as Oxidation-reduction reaction. It is a type of chemical reaction that involves a transfer of electrons between two species. The term covers a large and diverse body of processes. An oxidation-reduction reaction is any chemical reaction in which the oxidation number of a molecule, atom, or ion changes by gaining or losing an electron. Redox reactions are common and vital to some of the basic functions of life, including photosynthesis, respiration, combustion, and corrosion or rusting. Redox Reactions can be explained in simple terms:
· Oxidation is the loss of electrons or an increase in oxidation state by a molecule, atom, or ion.
· Reduction is the gain of electrons or a decrease in oxidation state by a molecule, atom, or ion.
