  4. standard conditions

  6. oxidation
    when a molecule in a reaction loses electrons
  7. reduction

  8. redox
    • a short way of writing Oxidation Reduction reaction
    • transfer of electrons
  9. oxidizing agent
    the ion or atom that is added in order to oxidize something
  10. reducing agent
