What are oxidising agents?

Advertisements

Solution 1

Oxidising agents are the substances that gain electrons in redox reaction and whose oxidation number is reduced.

Solution 2

Some substances such as alkaline potassium permanganate and acidified potassium
dichromate are capable of adding oxygen to others. These are known as oxidising agents.
