In a disproportionation reaction an element in one oxidation state is simultaneously oxidised and reduced, it is a special type of redox reaction. One of the reacting substances in a disproportionation reaction always contains an element that can exist in at least three oxidation states. The element in the form of reacting substance is in the intermediate oxidation state; and both higher and lower oxidation states of that element are formed in the reaction.
