  • In this chapter, we will examine for the first time in detail those reactions that involve the oxidation and reduction of organic compounds.  We will learn about how organic redox reactions can take two basic forms.  In one type of redox reaction, a hydrogen molecule (in the form of hydride anion plus a proton) is transferred to or from organic compound: these are called hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions.
