Dear ravkumarc@yahoo.com

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.

The compounds containing oxygen such as periodates, peroxy acids, permanganates are oxidising in nature. The compounds containing hydrogen such as lithium aluminium hydride, diborane, hydrazine are reducing in nature.
