Oxidation States • Pure elements: zero oxidation state • Simple ions: oxidation state = charge on ion E.g. 2 Na + Cl 2 2 Na + + 2 Cl - Ox #: 0 0 +1 -1 " Na is oxidized and is a reducing agent " Cl 2 is reduced and is an oxidizing agent

Assigning Oxidation Number " Group 1A: +1 " Group 2A: +2 " H: +1 except in metal hydrides (NaH, CaH 2 ) " F: -1 " O: -2 except when bonded to itself or fluorine " Oxidation states must sum to the charge on a compound or ion
