Balancing the Redox Equation

  • Emil J. Margolis


The predominant objective of this chapter is the discerning application of the two important mathematically organized methods in general use for balancing the oxidation-reduction equation:
  1. 1.

    by oxidation number;

  2. 2.

    by ion-electron method (also called “half-reactions” and “partials”).
