Oxidation Reduction Reaction Reactions of metals or any other organic compounds with oxygen to give oxides are labeled as oxidation. The removal of oxygen from metal oxides to give the metals in their elemental forms is labeled as reduction. In other words, oxidation is addition of oxygen and removal of hydrogen whereas reduction is addition of hydrogen and removal of oxygen.

Chemical reaction Reduction-Oxidation reaction commonly known as RedOx reaction Ox 1 + Red 2 ⇌ Red 1 + Ox 2 Chemical reaction based oxidation and reduction reaction is known as RedOx reaction Fe 2+ + Ce 4+ → Fe 3+ + Ce 3+ (1)

There are two kinds of electro chemical cells, galvanic or electrolytic. In galvanic cells, the chemical reaction occurs spontaneously to produce electrical energy. In a electrolytic cell, electrical energy is used to force the non spontaneous chemical reaction. Galvanic cells are of importance in our further discussion as we will be discussing the spontaneous chemical reaction to produce electrical energy. Electrochemical Cells

If a solution containing Fe 2+ is mixed with another solution containing Ce 4+ , there will be a redox reaction situation due to their tendency of transfer electrons. If we consider that these two solution are kept in separate beaker and connected by salt bridge and a platinum wire that will become a galvanic cell. If we connect a voltmeter between two electrode, the potential difference of two electrode can be directly measured. The Fe 2+ is being oxidised at the platinum wire (the anode): Fe 2+ → Fe 3+ + e - The electron thus produced will flow through the wire to the other beaker where the Ce 4+ is reduced (at the cathode). Ce 4+ + e - → Ce 3+

The reaction involve electron transfer Fe 2+ → Fe 3+ + e - (2) Ce 4+ + e - → Ce 3+ (3) Equation (2) & (3) are called half reactions No half reaction can occur by itself There must be an electron donner (reducing agent) and an electron accepter (oxidizing agent) Fe 2+ is the reducing agent and Ce 3+ is the oxidizing agent

Before we start the discussion of the oxidation reduction titration curve construction, we should understand the Nernst equation which was introduced by German scientist, Wlater Nernst in 1889.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
