MCAT Basics: Redox

This MCAT podcast covers Redox. First, I discuss the concept of a redox reaction. I go over oxidizing and reducing agents, what makes a compound a good (or bad) oxidizing agent, oxidation state of molecules/functional groups, common organic chemistry redox reagents, and redox in biology. Then, I discuss numerical (general chemistry) concepts related to redox. This includes determining oxidation number and electrochemical cells.

Please email me if you have any comments or concerns: MCATpodcast@medschoolcoach.com

Thanks for listening!
