Hydrogen is a reducing element, or reducing agent. More specifically, atomic Hydrogen, ie; singular Hydrogen atom, because it does not have a pair of electrons, only one, and therefor will accept or gain an electron to fill its valency of 2 electrons, a covalent bond. This type of Hydrogen is sometimes refered to as nascent Hydrogen-or newly formed Hydrogen from a chemical reaction to produce this atomic Hydrogen. Hope this helps... thumps up pls...

Cheers!!!!!!!!
