Scientists have tamed dramatic redox reactions
All chemical reactions are divided into two families: acid-base and redox ones. The latter are characterized by electron(s) transfer between reagents. Such relations usually release a lot of energy and are hard to control – they are violent and complete. Use of strong oxidizers or reducers for reaction may result in spectacular explosion with an […]
