MacNeil was using milk of magnesia, which is the hydroxide, for ‘gastric acidity’.
It is then returned to the hydroxide for continuation of the process.
The hydroxide occurs in nature as the mineral hydrargyllite, and in a partially dehydrated form called bauxite.
hydroxide, hī-droks′īd, n. a metallic or basic radical combined with one or more hydroxyl groups.
Write the equations for the preparation of manganous chloride, carbonate, and hydroxide.
The finger to be distended is cut from the hand at the second joint and placed in the hydroxide.
The most important are the sulphide, carbonate, and hydroxide.
It is a white powder which is readily decomposed by water with the formation of the hydroxide and hydrosulphide.
Manganite, or hydroxide of manganese; is brownish-black or iron-black, powder brown, with somewhat of a metallic lustre.
Indium oxide, In2O3, is a yellow powder which is formed on ignition of the hydroxide.
hydroxide hy·drox·ide (hī-drŏk'sīd')
A chemical compound containing the hydroxyl group, especially one that releases a hydroxyl group when dissolved.
A chemical compound containing one or more hydroxyl radicals (OH). Inorganic hydroxides include hydroxides of metals, some of which, like sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) and calcium hydroxide, are strong bases that are important industrial alkalis. Some metal hydroxides, such as those of zinc and lead, are amphoteric (they act like both acids and bases). Organic hydroxides include the alcohols.
