Oxidation and Reduction Reactions

Oxidation and Reduction Reactions in MCAT General Chemistry by Leah FischOxidation and Reduction reactions happen all the time in a living system and thus very likely to show up on the MCAT. This video walks you through oxidation and reduction reactions, how to figure out the half reactions, and how to easily recognize (+ trick) what gets oxidized and what gets reduced. You’ll also see how to identify redox species in Disproportionation, Single Replacement, Double Replacement, Combination/Synthesis and Combustion reactions
