An oxidizing agent is a reactant that removes electrons from other reactants during a redox reaction. We can also say that any chemical substance that has a tendency to accept electrons and thereby undergoing reduction themselves is known as an oxidising agent. Oxygen is the prime example of an oxidizing agent.
