The process of oxidation is the loss of electrons or an increase in oxidation state by a molecule, atom or ion and reduction is the gain of electrons or a decrease in oxidation state. The oxidation number is the total number of electrons that an atom gains or loses in order to form a chemical bond with another atom. Redox reactions are electron transfer processes and include all chemical reactions in which atoms have their oxidation state changed.
