    Over the last century, the concept of valence evolved into a range of approaches for describing the chemical bond, including Lewis structures (1916), valence bond theory (1927), molecular orbitals (1928), valence shell electron pair repulsion theory (1958) and all the advanced methods of quantum chemistry.
    The etymology of the word "valence" traces back to 1425, meaning "extract, preparation," from Latin valentia "strength, capacity," and the chemical meaning referring to the "combining power of an element" is recorded from 1884, from German Valenz.
    ...
    In the period table the Roman numerals tell us the valence of the elements in that column. The term valence refers to the "combining power" of the element and tells the number of bonds the element could form with a halide.
    ...I..........II...........III.........IV.........V..........VI.......VII*....

    --- TiCl4 -------- VF5 -----
    The greatest number of fluorine atoms that a single chlorine atom will bond with is 5, BrF5. But iodine, also in column VII will bond with seven fluorine atoms, IF7.
    In MnF4 manganese doesn't have a combining power of 7, but it does in Mn2O7. Also, rhenium forms ReF7.
    While the word "valence" still has many uses in chemistry, we seldom use it within the context of "combing power", or expressing the number of bonds an element can form.
    Because of the ambiguity of the term valence ,we now use the system of oxidation numbers as used in Stock nomenclature for coordination compounds, and the lambda notation, as used in the IUPAC nomenclature of inorganic chemistry . The "oxidation state" is a more clear indication of the electronic state of atoms in a molecule. The "oxidation state" of an atom in a molecule gives the number of valence electrons it has hypothetically gained or lost, by imagining the bonds to be completely ionic. In contrast to the valence, the oxidation state can be positive or negative.

    Oxidation is the chemical process in which an element combines with oxygen to form an "oxide". The "oxidation state" refers to the relative number of oxygen atoms which combine with the element. For instance, the metal tin can combine with oxygen to form two compounds SnO and SnO2. Since in SnO2 tin is combined with twice as many oxygen atoms, it has a greater oxidation state. If we assign an oxidation state of -2 to oxygen, the tin in SnO has an oxidation state of +2, and in SnO2 tin has an oxidation state of +4.

    in SnO2. In reality, the bonds in SnO and SnO2 are largely covalent, and there is no actual loss of electrons, only a change in oxidation state.
