Procedures for Decomposing a Redox Reaction into Half-Reaction
Fishtik, Ilie; Berka, Ladislav H.
Journal of Chemical Education, v82 n4 p553 Apr 2005
A simple algorithm for a complete enumeration of the possible ways a redox reaction (RR) might be uniquely decomposed into half-reactions (HRs) using the response reactions (RERs) formalism is presented. A complete enumeration of the possible ways a RR may be decomposed into HRs is equivalent to a complete enumeration of stoichiometrically distinct RERs or HRs.
