I hope You all like it. I hope It is very beneficial for you all. I really thought that you all get enough knowledge from this presentation. This presentation is about materials and their classifications. After you read this presentation you knowledge is not as before.

  1. 1.  Oxidation and Reduction  Oxidizing and Reducing agent  Process of Oxidation
  2. 2. Oxidation Reduction Gain in Oxygen Loss in Oxygen Loss in Hydrogen Gain in Hydrogen Loss in Electron Gain in Electron Increase in Oxidation State Decrease in Oxidation State
  3. 3. Mg ₊ Cl₂ → MgCl₂ Mg → Mg²⁺ ₊ 2e‫־‬ In this reaction,magnesium atoms has been oxidised to form magnesium ions. Each magnesium atom loses 2 electrons to form a magnesium ion.
  4. 4. CH4 ₊ 2O₂ → CO₂ ₊ 2H₂O The hydrogen atom in methane has also gained oxygen.Hydrogen has been oxidised to water. The carbon atom in methane has gained oxygen and has been oxidised to carbon dioxide.
  5. 5. The oxidation state is the charge an atom of an element would have if it existed as an ion in a compound (even if it is actually covalently bonded ). The oxidation state is also known as oxidation number.
  6. 6. A substance is oxidised if it loses hydrogen. 2NH3 ₊ 3CuO → N₂ ₊ 3Cu ₊ 2H₂O Ammonia has lost hydrogen. It has been oxidised to nitrogen.
  7. 7.  Redox says that electrons are transferred between reactants:  For Example: Mg + S → Mg2⁺ + S2⁻  The magnesium atom (which has zero charge) changes to a magnesium ion by losing 2 electrons, and is oxidized to Mg2⁺.  The sulfur atom (which has no charge) is changed to a sulfide ion by gaining 2 electrons, and is reduced to S2⁻.
  8. 8.  An oxidizing agent is a chemical species that causes the other reactant in a redox reaction reaction to be oxidized, and is always reduced in the process.  A reducing agent is a chemical species that causes the other reactant in a redox reaction to be reduced, and it is always oxidized in he process.
  9. 9.  Remember: • An oxidizing agent is itself REDUCED when it oxidizes something. • A reducing agent is itself OXIDISED when it reduces something. 2Mg + O₂ → 2MgO • Mg is oxidized, and thus is the reducing agent • O₂ is reduced, and thus is the oxidizing agent

  11. 11.  When an atom or compound is oxidized, its properties change.  For example: When an iron object undergoes oxidation, it is transformed because it has lost electrons. Unoxidized iron is a strong, structurally sound metal, while oxidized iron is a brittle, reddish powder. Once iron has been oxidized, it carries a charge. Because it lost three electrons, it now has a positive charge of three. This positive three charge is represented by the number three and a positive sign (3+) written as a superscript to the right of the Iron (Fe) symbol. Iron is very easily oxidized, which is why it's important to minimize the exposure of iron to oxygen and moisture. Iron will continue to lose electrons to oxygen as long as oxygen is present.
