Definition of Redox Reaction

From chem2U

One way of remembering the defnition is by using mneumonics. The following is one example: OIL-RIG


Other example of mneumonics:

  1. "GEROA", "LEORA"—Gain Electron Reduction Oxidizing Agent, Lose Electron Oxidation Reducing Agent

  1. Another way:
    LEO (Losing of Electron--Oxidation) the lion 'GER' (Gaining Electron--Reduction)
    Hope it helps. :)
