The summary reaction for photosynthesis can be written as 6 CO 2 + 6 H 2 O ―› C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6 O 2 This type of reaction is an oxidation–reduction (or redox) reaction. This reaction is also [ anabolic /catabolic] and [ endergonic /exergonic]. In redox reactions, ___electrons____ (and associated H n + ions) are transferred from one compound or element to another. If one compound or element loses ____electrons__ and becomes oxidized, another must gain ____electrons___ and become reduced. For example, in photosynthesis, water becomes [ oxidized /reduced] (to O 2 ) and the ___electrons_____ (and associated H + ions) it “loses” in the process [oxidize/ reduce ] CO 2 to glucose. [ Anabolic
