Can this call oxidation?
« on: January 27, 2019, 02:27:44 PM »

I am just wondering the cycloaliphatic phthalic anhydride become biacid after absoring the water. Can this be called as oxidation? If not, please help me explain why?
Thank you

Which element changes its oxidation state in this reaction?

It is fairly easy to assign oxidation numbers to carbon atoms.  See what you get.
