    Why cannot oxidation occur without reduction?

    Answer:

                    Oxidation involves the loss of electrons while the reduction involves the gain of electrons. Energy is needed when a species loses electrons and is released when it accepts electrons. This means that a species can gain energy only at the cost of electron releasing species. In other words, oxidation cannot occur without reduction or oxidation and reduction go side by side.
