This unit was delivered to cover unit 9 of the IB -Redox Processes, however it would be suitable for most post-16 programs of study. It begins by recapping the subjects that students should be familiar with from GCSE, before building into more advanced topics. Each PowerPoint comes with a ´student version´ which has gaps for the students to complete, and contains several exercises for students to do. I have also included past paper questions and answer schemes. Topics covered are: Reduction and Oxidation Oxidation states and how to determine them Naming compounds using oxidation states Oxidising and reducing agents Half equations in molten substances Half equations in acidic solutions The activity series Redox titrations Winkler method to determine biochemical oxygen demand Voltaic Cells Electrolytic Cells Cell potentials The standard hydrogen electrode Ecell and spontaneity Working out cell potentials Polarity and direction of electron flow The electrochemical series Electrolysis of aqueous solutions The effect of the nature of electrodes on the products Electroplating Electrolysis of water Quantitative electrolysis
