Redox Reactions
back
The reactions central to electrochemistry that involve oxidation and reduction of molecules.
front
Oxidation State
back
The electronic charge on a molecule that is changed through redox reactions.
front
Oxidation
back
Loss of Electrons (which creates a positive change in oxidation number).
front
Reduction
back
Gain of Electrons (which creates a negative change in oxidation number).
front
Electrochemical Cells
back
The most simple type of battery.
front
Anode
back
The electrode at which oxidation occurs.
front
Cathode
back
The electrode at which reduction occurs.
front
Electric Potential, E
back
The property of a cell that is used to determine how many electrons are flowing through a wire.
front
Nernst Equation
back
An equation used to calculate Electric Potential.
front
Standard Electric Potential, Eº
back
Equal to the difference in standard potentials between the two solutions (or half-cells) of the cell. Tells you how likely it is an ion will be reduced.
front
Standard Hydrogen Electrode (SHE)
back
An electrode used as a reference for all other standard reduction potentials (Eº is equal to zero).
front
Catalyst
back
Any substance that increases a reaction rate without being consumed. It works by lowering Activation Energy.
front
Activation Energy
back
The amount of energy that must overcome for a reaction to occur.
front
Homogeneous Catalysts
back
Catalysts that are in the same phase (gas, liquid, or solid) as the reactants.
front
Heterogeneous Catalysts
back
Catalysts that are in a different phase (gas, liquid, or solid) than the reactants.
