    They're the same.
    Its like saying "sulfuric acid" for "sulphuric acid".

    oxidise = oxidize as far as the chemistry is concerned.

    Different spellings. One of them was probably introduced by the Americans. They both mean the same thing because they are the same thing.

    Same thing but Oxidise is better as it isn't from the American English. Just like Aluminium and not Aluminum or Sulphur rather than Sulfur.
