redox reactions and salts

Postby Melissa Per 2J » Sun Feb 11, 2018 11:48 pm

Do all REDOX reaction need to have a salt product? And does producing a salt have something to do with making a reaction nuetral?

There are many redox reactions that do not result in a salt product. The use of redox reactions in electrochemistry is only one example. For example, cellular respiration and photosynthesis are redox reactions that do not result in the production of a salt. Redox reactions are reactions in which one reactant is oxidized and another is reduced. Basically, a redox reaction is one in which there is a transfer of electrons.

Not all redox reactions have salt products. Overall a redox reaction is any reaction where there is a transfer of electrons from one thing to another. It only seems that all redox reactions have salt products because redox reactions are common in electrochemical reactions.
