Redox Reactions

Information on oxidation-reduction reactions.

A Redox reaction (reduction-oxidation reaction) is a chemical reaction that occurs by changing of the oxidation states of the involved atoms caused by electron transfer processes.

A RedOx reaction is thus an electron transfer reaction and a basic concept that occurs in all areas of chemistry.

The following list includes online available information and sources to the redox reactions.

General Chemistry: The Essential Concepts

The seventh edition of General Chemistry continues the tradition of presenting only the material that is essential for a one-year general chemistry course. It strikes a balance between theory and application by incorporating real-world examples; helping students visualize the three-dimensional atomic and molecular structures that are the basis of chemical activity; and developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Although the seventh edition incorporates many impressive features, such as conceptual idea review, animations correlated to the text, and hand-sketched worked examples, General Chemistry is still 200 to 300 pages shorter and much less expensive than other two-semester textbooks. Dr. Chang and Dr. Goldsby’ concise-but-thorough approach will appeal to efficiency-minded instructors and value-conscious students.
