Redox Reactions


Addition of oxygen/electronegative element to a substance or removal of hydrogen/electropositive element from a substance

Loss of electron(s) by any species


Removal of oxygen/electronegative element from a substance or addition of hydrogen/electropositive element to a substance

Gain of electron(s) by any species

Redox Reactions

Oxidation and reduction always occur simultaneously, e.g.

H2S(g) + Cl2(g) β†’ 2 HCl(g) + S(s), here, H2S is oxidised and chlorine is reduced

2 Na(s) + H2(g) β†’ 2 NaH(s), here, sodium is oxidised and hydrogen is reduced

Disproportionation Reactions

It is a reaction in which an element is simultaneously oxidised and reduced, e.g.

2 H2O2(aq) β†’ 2 H2O(l) + O2(g)

Here, the oxygen of peroxide is in –1 state and it is oxidised to zero oxidation state in O2 and reduced to – 2 oxidation state in H2O.

Redox Couple

The oxidised and reduced forms of a substance taking part in an oxidation or reduction half reaction, e.g.

Zn2+/Zn (oxidation)

Cu2+/Cu (reduction)

Intramolecular Redox Reactions

Here, one element of a compound is oxidised while the other is reduced, e.g.

2 KClO3 β†’ 2 KCl + 3 O2

Here, oxygen is oxidised and chlorine is reduced

Oxidising Agents (Oxidants)

A species, which oxidises others but itself gets reduced

Acceptor of electron(s)

Reducing Agents (Reductants)

A species, which reduces others but itself gets oxidised

Donor of electron(s)

Oxidation Number

It is the residual charge (Β±) present on an atom in a compound when the shared electrons in a covalent bond belong entirely to a more electronegative element
