Oxidation and Reduction of Alkenes and Alkynes

Alkenes & Alkynes Oxidation Reduction and Oxidative Cleavage tutorial videoThis video takes you through the various oxidation and reduction reactions you’ve covered back in alkene and alkyne reactions.

In this video we differentiate between redox reactions vs reactions that add oxygen/hydrogen without a net reduction.

This video also compares different types of oxidative cleavage reactions using Ozonolysis and KMnO4 for terminal and internal alkenes and alkynes
