Oxidation Reduction (Redox) Titration • Have you ever thought “What are the principal sources of energy on this planet, both natural or biological and artificial?” “What are the reactions that allow energy to be extracted from molecules?” “What is responsible for cellular respiration and photosynthesis?” “What is the cause of minerals formation and mobilization and changes in rocks colors?” The answer is “Redox Reactions” which are the most important reactions in our life. • Redox reactions are all around us. In fact, much of our technology, from fire to laptop batteries, is largely based on redox reactions. Redox reactions take place through either a simple process, such as the burning of carbon in oxygen to yield carbon dioxide (CO2), or a more complex process such as the oxidation of glucose (C6H12O6) in the human body through a series of electron transfer processes. • An oxidation-reduction reaction is any chemical reaction in which the oxidation number of molecule, atom, or ion changes by gaining or losing an electron. • Redox reactions are common and vital to some of the basic functions of life, including photosynthesis, respiration, combustion, and corrosion or rusting. • The ion or molecule that accepts electrons is called the oxidizing agent; by accepting electrons, it causes the oxidation of another species. • Conversely, the species that donates electrons is called the reducing agent; when the reaction occurs, it reduces the ...
