The loss of electrons by a molecule atom or ion is called?

oxidation. Gaining electrons is called reduction.


Loss of electrons from a molecule is called?

Ionization, it becomes a cation


Reaction in which electrons are transfered between atoms?

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).


Is a molecule that has lost electrons been reduced?

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


What is the loss and gain of electrons to form ions?

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.


What is a molecule with uneven electrons called?

an ion


Loss of electrons is called?

oxidation..........


What does a molecule that has been oxidized have?

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.


The loss of an electron by a molecule is called what?

Oxidation


When a donor molecule loses an electron do we say it has become reduced?

Loss of electrons is oxidation.


What is called when electrons are not shared equally in a molecule?

polar


True or False when an atoms gains or loses electrons the charged particle that results is called a molecule?

False. If an atom gains or loses electrons, the result is called an ion, not a molecule.


Define ion and ionic compounds?

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.


How do the definitions of oxidation and reduction differ?

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.


What is it called when two atoms share one or more electrons?

It is a molecule with covalent bonding.


When a molecule gains oxygen or loses electrons its called?

an ion


The movement of electrons from one molecule to another molecule is called what?

It is called a redox reaction. Otherwise know as an oxidation-reduction reaction.


What is it called when an atom shares two electrons?

This is called a covalent bond and it makes a molecule.


What Neutral particle is formed when atoms share electrons?

it is called a molecule


What is oxidation?

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.


What is the loss of one or more electrons from an atom called?

oxidation


The loss of one or more electrons from an atom is called?

Oxidation


What is Loss of electrons or loss of hydrogen atoms from compound?

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!!!!


What is electrons from negative to passitive are called?

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.


What is the loss of electrons?

i beilev that the loss of electrons has to do with respiration.
