Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Robert on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 8:45pm.

Hello,

I had a lab about calorimetry and one of the questions was if the reaction of acetone with hypochlorite is an oxidation/reduction or acid/base.

Would the answer be: oxidation/reduction
because the oxygen from the hydroxide from the Sodium hydroxide detaches and joins the Chlorine from the Chlorine gas? The Sodium also forms a bond with the other CHlorine. Is this correct?
