Is the reaction between natrium hydroxide and and hydrogen chloride a redox process?

1 Answer

Answer:

#"ABSOLUTELY NOT"#

Explanation:

This is an acid base reaction with no formal electron transfer, and NO change in the oxidation states of the reactants or product:

#stackrel(+I)(Na)stackrel(-II)(O)stackrel(+I)(H) +stackrel(+I)Hstackrel(-I)Clrarr stackrel(+I)(Na)stackrel(-I)(Cl) + stackrel(+I)(H)_2stackrel(-II)(O)#

The oxidation numbers have been depicted. No change in elemental oxidation state is observed; therefore no formal electron transfer; therefore, this is #"NOT A REDOX PROCESS........."#
