There are mainly two types of chemical reactions; one that does not involve the transfer of electrons and the other that involves the transfer of electrons during the changing of reactant into product. The electron transfer reactions are called redox reactions which is the combination of oxidation half and reduction half reaction.
In our daily life, redox reactions are taking place such as rusting of iron, digestion of food, formation of acid rain, functioning of acid battery and dry cells, electroplating and many more. This unit provides the knowledge of electron transfer reactions and method of balancing such reactions
What we are going to study
In this chapter we are going to study about general and electronic concept of oxidation and reduction, Oxidation number and rules for assigning oxidation number or oxidation state, Balancing redox reaction and Electrolysis.
When you have finished studying this unit, you should able to:
- grasp the electronic concept of oxidation and reduction and to identify oxidation half and reduction half reaction in the given redox reaction.
- define oxidation number and to find the oxidation number of an atom in the given molecule or ion.
- balance redox reaction by oxidation number and ion electron method.
- explain electrolysis and its qualitative and quantitative aspects.

If you want the complete notes of oxidation and reduction chapter including some important questions then just check out the PDF given below. The PDF contains all the notes of class 11 states of matter chapter of chemistry. The PDF version will be easy for students to prepare notes. If you don't have the time to prepare notes then you can even print the PDF.
States of Matter Class 11 Chemistry Notes PDF
In class 11 oxidation and reduction chapter we will study about many different topics. Students should take notes of every topics very carefully for better understanding of the chapter and to prepare a well managed notes for exam preparation. If your teacher hasn't provided you any notes then you can prepare your notes from the PDF given below.
If you want to use the PDF while you are offline then you can easily download the PDF for personal use. By the term personal use we meant that you can't share the PDF for any commercial purpose without permission.
We have provided the notes for educational purpose with a hope that class 11 students will use it to save their time and focus in studying instead of making notes. You just have to download the PDF and then you can read from the PDF itself if you don't have enough time to copy the notes.
Share the love and spread the knowledge. Free to share this notes with your friends and classmates! 😊
