Meaning of Oxidation

What is Oxidation:

Oxidation indicates the action and effect of oxidizing or oxidizing. Oxidation is a phenomenon in which an element or compound binds with oxygen, although strictly speaking, oxidation as such refers to the chemical process that involves the loss of electrons by a molecule, atom or ion. When this happens, we say that the substance has increased its oxidation state.

Oxidation and reduction

Since as oxidation we know the chemical process by which a molecule, atom or ion loses electrons, as reduction we will designate the opposite process, that is, the chemical reaction that involves the gain of electrons by a molecule, atom or ion. The simultaneity of these processes is known by the name of redox, contraction of the words reduction and oxidation.
