Reduction

Oxidation is the gain of oxygen by a substance. For example, magnesium is oxidised when it reacts with oxygen to form magnesium oxide:magnesium + oxygen → magnesium oxide

The process of gaining oxygen is said to be OXIDATION.The processor losing oxygen is said to be REDUCTION.A substance that is reduced is the oxidising agent.The substance that is oxidised is the reducing agent.

Reduction is the loss of oxygen from a substance. For example, copper oxide can be reduced to form copper if it is reacted with hydrogen:copper oxide + hydrogen → copper + water
