    Oxidation is the removal of electrons right? |dw:1444511282138:dw|

    Yeah and dehydrogenation is the removal of hydrogen. So it's similar in terms of removing an ion?

    Oh what I meant was that since dehydrogenation is removing H, they will lose an electron since hydrogen has one electron. And then oxidation is losing an electron so that ion would become a cation. That's what I was thinking.
