Redox Pairs and Common Oxidizing and Reducing Agents

Redox Pairs and Common Oxidizing and Reducing Agents in MCAT General Chemistry by Leah FischOxidation and reduction cannot happen on their own. When one atom loses electrons another atom has to gain these electrons.

This video walks you through redox pairs using the mnemonic LEO the lion says GER to help you understand oxidizing/reducing agents. You’ll also learn how to recognize (rather than memorize) common oxidizing and reducing agents.
