  • Redox Reactions
    • If electrons are transferred, its a redox reaction
    • Oxidisation can mean the addition of oxygen (or a reaction with it) and reduction can be the removal of oxygen.
    • OILRIG
      • Oxidisation
        • Is
          • Loss
            • Reduction
              • Is
                • Gain
    • REDuction and OXidisation happen at the same time, hence the name REDOX.
      • In displacement reactions, its always the metal ion that gains electrons and is reduced and the metal atom always loses electrons and is reduced
        • Ionic equations show the displacement of ions by metals.
    • Displacement reactions are redox reactions
      • Involes one metal removing another from a compound
        • More reactive metal will displace a less reactive metal from its compound
