Hi,

My textbook is being a bit ambiguous and indecisive, in terms of properly defining something. Can oxidation-reduction reactions produce ion compounds and molecular compounds?

Thank you

What is a redox reaction?

How is elemental sodium different from that found in NaCl?

How is elemental chlorine different from that found in NaCl?

What process must've caused this(these) change(s)?

What process is happening in the reaction below? (hint: what are the oxidation states of the oxygens on the left? On the right?)

2H2O2 → 2H2O + O2

Classify the above reactant/product pair as ionic or molecular.

Now answer your own question.
