Unit 8: Redox reactions

About this unit

Where there is oxidation, there is always reduction – Chemistry is essentially a study of redox systems.

In this eighth unit of class 11 chemistry, we will learn about redox reactions, oxidation numbers, types of redox reactions (disproportionation), balancing redox reactions, and standard electrode potentials.
