Description

Assigning oxidation states for the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide, a disproportionation reaction. 

Chemistry

Did you know that everything is made out of chemicals? Chemistry is the study of matter: its composition, properties, and reactivity. This material roughly covers a first-year high school or college course, and a good understanding of algebra is helpful.

Redox reactions

Oxidation and reduction are powerful ideas for thinking about how charge is transferred within a reaction. As we'll see, it is something of a hypothetical, but it is, nonetheless, very useful.

Topic: Science

Learn about all the sciences, from physics, chemistry and biology, to cosmology and astronomy, across hundre…
