monoxide, IrO, prepared by adding potassium hydrate to the hexachloride of iridium, and digesting the precipitate in an acid.
It is reduced to the monoxide when heated in a current of hydrogen.
monoxide, mo-nok′sīd, n. an oxide containing a single oxygen atom in combination with two univalent atoms or one bivalent atom.
The monoxide, PbO, occurs in nature as the mineral lead ochre.
The bottle B contains a solution of sodium hydroxide, which removes the carbon dioxide formed along with the monoxide.
The pipes F supply air, so that the monoxide burns as it reënters the furnace and assists in heating the charge.
This is called the oxide, protoxide, or monoxide, and forms the standard to which those both above and below it are preferred.
monoxide mon·ox·ide (mə-nŏk'sīd')
