An oxidation-reduction(redox)reactionis a type of chemicalreactionthat involves a transfer of electrons between two species.An oxidation-reduction reactionis any chemicalreactionin which the oxidation number of a molecule, atom, or ion changes by gaining or losinganelectron.
The formation of hydrogen fluoride is an example of a redox reaction. We can break the reaction down to analyze the oxidation and reduction ofreactants. The hydrogen is oxidized and loses two electrons, so each hydrogen becomes positive.
