Students Will Review:
This chapter summarizes the material students need to know about oxidation for a standard science course. Topics covered include:
- Mechanism, reaction and conditions of the oxidation of alcohols
- Steps involved in glucose oxidation
- Regulation and mechanism of fatty acid oxidation
- Product and mechanism of the oxidation of ethanol
1. Oxidation of Alcohols: Mechanism, Reaction & Conditions
How are alcohols oxidized and what are the products formed? In this lesson we will be learning about the mechanism behind the oxidation as well as the reaction conditions.
2. Glucose Oxidation: Steps, Equation & Products
Glucose oxidation breaks down glucose to create energy. In this lesson we will learn the overall outcome of glucose oxidation, what the net products are, and the individual steps.
3. What is Fatty Acid Oxidation? - Regulation, Steps & Mechanism
Fats are a high energy source for the body. This energy is obtained through fatty acid oxidation. We will learn the steps of fatty acid oxidation and how it is regulated.
4. Oxidation of Ethanol: Equation, Product & Mechanism
What happens when ethanol is oxidized? In this lesson, we will be learning about the chemical equation associated with the oxidation of ethanol, what product is formed, and how the reaction happens by studying the mechanism.
