Memorization Technique

Postby Andrea ORiordan 1L » Mon Feb 05, 2018 2:37 pm

Hi all! Not really a question, but I thought I'd share this memorization technique I know.

Dr. Lavelle said that Loss of Electrons is Oxidation (LEO) and that Gain of Electrons is Reduction (GER). He also mentioned that you could remember LEO the lion. I like to add GER to it so that it reads:

LEO the lion says GER.

This helps me, and I hope it helps you guys too!

Another common one is OIL RIG
Oxidation is loss (of e-)
Reduction is gain (of e-)
