Oxidation

Oxidation, the process of losing one or several electrons during a reaction, generally occurs when the oxidation state of a molecule, atom or ion is significantly enhanced. Chemical oxidation always involves transformation of the constituents in compounds into a less toxic valence state by addition of a chemical oxidant into a reaction media. Oxidation chemistry, an extremely important industrial technique, plays a critical role in a wide variety of industries including routine consume foods, cosmetics and the pharmaceutical. Especially for the pharmaceutical industry, the synthesis of numerous small molecule compounds is involved with oxidation. However, the condition for chemical oxidation is usually highly toxic, characterized by complex process, which requires advanced techniques and efficient methods.
