Investigate the use of oxidation and reduction reactions in the creation of metals from minerals. By studying the properties of gold, aluminum, zinc, and copper, viewers will understand how each element can best be converted into a metal. The program then demonstrates the methods used in this process: a flash furnace, electrolysis, and the Bayer process. Each process is thoroughly explained--both the chemical formulas taking place and the physical steps. By applying the abstract formulas to real reactions, students will comprehend the complex reactions and their use in everyday engineering.
