Wikipedia

  1. Oxide

    An oxide () is a chemical compound containing at least one oxygen atom and one other element in its chemical formula. "Oxide" itself is the dianion (anion bearing a net charge of –2) of oxygen, an O2– ion with oxygen in the oxidation state of −2. Most of the Earth's crust consists of oxides. Even materials considered pure elements often develop an oxide coating. For example, aluminium foil develops a thin skin of Al2O3 (called a passivation layer) that protects the foil from further oxidation.

  1. oxide

    An oxide is a chemical compound that contains at least one oxygen atom combined with another element. Most elements form binary oxides with oxygen, for example, carbon forms carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur forms sulfur dioxide (SO2), and iron forms iron oxide (Fe2O3). Oxides can be produced through various processes such as oxidation and combustion. They exist in different states of matter (solid, liquid, gas) and can be categorized as acidic or basic oxides.

  1. Oxide

    An oxide is a chemical compound that contains at least one oxygen atom and one other element in its chemical formula. Metal oxides typically contain an anion of oxygen in the oxidation state of −2. Most of the Earth's crust consists of solid oxides, the result of elements being oxidized by the oxygen in air or in water. Hydrocarbon combustion affords the two principal carbon oxides: carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. Even materials considered pure elements often develop an oxide coating. For example, aluminium foil develops a thin skin of Al2O3 that protects the foil from further corrosion. Different oxides of the same element are distinguished by Roman numerals denoting their oxidation number, e.g. iron oxide versus iron oxide.
