65. Reactions in which one or more _________ are transferred between species are called oxidation-reduction reactions.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The term corresponding to the given blank is to be stated.

Reaction in which one or more _____are transferred between species are called oxidation-reduction reaction.

Concept Introduction:

A chemical reaction which includes a transfer of electrons between two species is known as an oxidation-reduction reaction or redox reaction.

Explanation

Oxidation is the process in which loss of electrons occurs whereas reduction is the process in which gain of electrons occurs. In the reaction of elemental sodium and chlorine, each sodium atom loses one electron, forming a positive ion. Therefore, sodium is oxidized. Each chlorine atom gains one electron, forming a negative chloride ion, and is thus reduced...
