Recall the mnemonics LEO GER.
Oxidation half-reaction: lost electrons (electrons are on the product side)
Reduction half-reaction: gained electrons (electrons are on the reactant side)
The diagram below represents a molecular view of a process occurring at an electrode in a voltaic cell.
Does the process represent oxidation or reduction?
