Following up on this post, here’s an attempt at trying to put many of the reactions in organic chemistry in perspective, from the standpoint of oxidation state. Note that there’s a lot of gaps – very little on amines, for instance, and no treatment of epoxides or diols – but I hope that people will find this useful. It was very rewarding to put together. Note that a similarly useful chart organizing molecules by oxidation state can be found here and especially check out Adam’s beautiful chart of organic chemistry oxidation states.
