Such a reaction is called called a REDOX reaction. The RED, of course, comes from REDuction and OX from OXidation. However, it is pronounced re-dox and not red-ox. Here is a simple example of a redox reaction: Ag + + Cu ---> Ag + Cu 2+ I have deliberately not balanced it and I have also written it in net ionic form.
