Oxidation is another word for rust. Oxygen exposure has a chemical reaction with metals causing it to deteriorate.

They are also informally known as redox reactions. The word is derived from reduction and oxidation.

Oxidising, or oxidation. Rust forms from the oxidation of iron, creating Ferrous Oxide (rust). also chickenrust

Oxidation is simply another word for synthesis, the transfer of electrons from one atom to another. Ionic compounds are generally associated with lattice energies, whereas oxidative compounds are not.

Another name for rapid oxidation is fire, or combustion.

Sometimes called oxidation state.

Oxidation is the loss of one electron when the surface comes in contact with another surface or surfaces. Commonly examples of oxidation include the browning of a cut apple and rust when water stays on a metal surface for a long period of time.

Oxidation is when the oxygen atom gives up an electron atom to another atom.

No. Oxidation is not irreversible. Go outside. Do you see some green stuff called leaves? Photosynthesis is a fancy word for reversing oxidation.

Oxidation is the best term. There is no other single word (or term) that can do it.

Zero. The oxidation of one compound must be matched by the reduction of another.

The oxidation state of one atom increases while another decreases.

A substance that oxidizes another substance

The process of oxidation is when a mineral is exposed to oxygen and sunlight for some amount of time

Oxidation is a process in which a chemical substance changes because of the addition of oxygen. Oxidation describes the loss of electrons by a molecule, atom or ion.

Oxidation is a word used to describe something that is going through the process of being oxidized. A good sentence is, while coal is burning any sulfur goes through the oxidation process and turns into sulfur dioxide.

Oxidation = loss of electrons Reduction = gain of electrons Oxidation-reduction: a reversible chemical reaction (one reaction is of oxidation and the another of reduction).

Combustion or oxidation.

magnesium+oxygen = magnesium oxide

Oxidation would be one type of 'wearing away'. (Rust is oxidation of iron.)

The oxidation number of an element depend on another element it react with to form a compound e.g manganese(iv)oxide mno4 the oxidation number of oxygen there is four while the oxidation number of manganse is 7 in most radox reaction the oxidation number of oxygen is usually 4 when writing the full equation

Because oxidation and reduction reactions can be separated from each other in space by the use of at least two electrodes, oxidation occurring at the surface of one electrode and reduction at the surface of another.
