Redox reactions occur as one element loses electrons and another element gains those electrons. Suppose instead that protons and neutrons were gained and lost in a redox reaction. In your initial post to the discussion, answer the following questions: How might this affect the products that are made? Do you think these types of reactions are even possible? Explain why or why not.
