oxidation. Gaining electrons is called reduction.
Ionization, it becomes a cation
This is called a redox reaction, where one molecule gains electrons and one molecule loses electrons. Reduction is the gain of electrons and oxidation the gain of electrons. It can be remembered as OILRIG (Oxidation Is Loss Reduction Is Gain).
OIL RIGOxidation Is Loss (of electrons)Reduction Is Gain (of electrons)So no, a molecule which has lost electrons has a positive charge and so has been oxidised
It can be called oxidation (loss of electrons) or reduction (gain of electrons) if it occurs in a chemical reaction.It can also be called ionization.
Well it has less electrons than it had before. That is the definition of oxidation. The loss of electrons is oxidation. The gain of electrons is reduction.
Loss of electrons is oxidation.
False. If an atom gains or loses electrons, the result is called an ion, not a molecule.
An ion is molecule that has either gained or lost electrons. A molecule that has gained electrons is called an anion. A molecule that has lost electrons is called a cation. An ionic compound is a compound where two or more ions are held together by ionic bonds.
Oxidation is the loss of electrons or an increase in oxidation state by a molecule, atom or ion. Reduction is the gain of electrons or a decrease in oxidation state by a molecule, atom, or ion.
It is a molecule with covalent bonding.
It is called a redox reaction. Otherwise know as an oxidation-reduction reaction.
This is called a covalent bond and it makes a molecule.
it is called a molecule
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.
Loss of electrons means that a molecule is oxidized and the molecule receiving the electrons means that it is being reduced. Reduction essentially means the loss of overall electrical charge. Another important thing to remember is that redox reactions (reduction-oxidation) reactions occur simultaneously. Loss of hydrogen atoms is considered a part of an molecule losing a "simple electron," thus because hydrogen has only 1 electron and 1 proton. Furthermore, loss of hydrogen is considered dehydrogenation reactions - the apparent lose of hydrogen atoms because of biochemical formation. Hope this helps!!!!
When positive electrons from one atom forms a connection with negative electrons from another one, this is called an ionic bond and leads to the formation of a molecule.
i beilev that the loss of electrons has to do with respiration.
