A reducing agent is one of the reactants of an oxidation-reduction reaction which reduces the other reactant by giving out electrons to the reactant. If the reducing agent does not pass electrons to other substance in a reaction, then the reduction process cannot occur.

Some common reducing agents include metals such as Na, Fe, Zn, Al and non-metals such as C, S, H2
