redox reaction
short for oxidation-reduction reaction, a chemical reaction that involves electrons being transferred from one substance to another
reducing agent

the gain of electrons or decrease in oxidation state in a chemical reaction
a condition occurring when more than one valid Lewis structure can be written for a particular molecule; the actual electronic structure is not represented by any one of the Lewis structures but by the average of all of them
