With the Oxidation–Reduction Basics Student Chemistry Laboratory Kit, students investigate reactions to determine the relative tendency of metals to lose electrons. Students also analyze the relative tendency of halogens to gain electrons.

Redox, single replacement, metal reactivity, halogen reactivity! Students will gain an understanding of each of these concepts as they perform the laboratory activities in this kit. Students investigate reactions between various metals and metallic ion solutions to determine the relative tendency of metals to lose electrons. Students will then combine free halogens with halide ion solutions to determine the relative tendency of halogens to gain electrons. This kit makes a perfect introduction to your redox unit! Includes Teacher Notes, reproducible student handouts and all specialized equipment, metals, test reagents and chemicals to prepare chlorine and bromine water.
Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Perform this experiment in a fume hood or well-ventilated lab.
