By the end of this unit, you should be able to:

  • explain the term oxidation state
  • give the oxidation states of some common elements
  • deduce the oxidation state from the compound’s name, for transition elements
  • determine the oxidation state for each element that makes up a compound
  • identify a redox reaction using change in oxidation state
