ETYM Cf. French oxidation.
The process of oxidizing; the addition of oxygen to a compound with a loss of electrons; always occurs accompanied by reduction; SYN. oxidization, oxidisation.
A reaction in which there is an increase in valence resulting from a loss of electrons; often associated with the corrosion of metals, where the corroded metal forms an oxide; elevated temperatures increase the rate of oxidation.
In chemistry, the loss of electrons, gain of oxygen, or loss of hydrogen by an atom, ion, or molecule during a chemical reaction.
Oxidation may be brought about by reaction with another compound (oxidizing agent), which simultaneously undergoes reduction, or electrically at the anode (positive electrode) of an electrolytic cell.
