Today s factoids
Today’s Factoids

Population of China: 1,300,000,000 (20% of global population)

Population of USA: 300,000,000

Log10(China) = 9.1

Log10(USA) = 8.5

U.S. –awarded Ph.D.’s in science & engineering: ~25,000/year



A sample case
A sample case

2Na + 2H2O 2Na+ + H2 + 2OH-

Na was oxidized: Na  Na+ + e- (electron lost)

H was reduced: lost oxygen

O no change: lost H but gained e-

Remember…we actually ran this reaction by dumping

some sodium into water.


Another one
Another one

2 CH3OH  2 CH2O + H2

O: ???


Still another one related to butter vs margarine

CH3CH2CH2CH=CHCH2CH3 + H2

CH3CH2CH2CH-CHCH2CH3

H

Secret Agents: all part of the semantics nightmare that is RedOx

  • Something that promotes reduction: reducing agent

    • Example: K, Na, H, LiAlH4

  • Something that promotes oxidation: oxidizing agent

    • Example, O, F, Br, K2Cr2O7
