I do not know how much information you need, so I will give as much as an High School student in UK would need to know.

-They contain haemoglobin (contains Iron, which gives it it's red colour) which binds to oxygen so that red blood cell can carry it around the body.

-They have no nucleus so there is more space for haemoglobin.

-Red Blood cells have biconcave shape to increase their surface area.

What does oxygen diffuse into?

Oxygen diffuses from any place there is a lot of it to any place where there is less. In the body, it diffuses from the air in the alveoli of the lungs, through the lung and capillary walls and into the blood, where it is taken up by the haemoglobin of the red blood cells. When the bood reaches the body tissues it diffuses out of the blood and into the cells.
