Unlike metals like iron, which rusts and corrodes dramatically, chromium remains stable after oxidation and subsequent burial.
In fact, it is no longer “rubber,” but an oxidation product containing much resinous matter.
The annealing cannot be carried out in air, owing to the tendency to oxidation.
All access of air should be avoided as much as possible, as it leads to oxidation.
(p. 61) The author continues his investigations of the oxidation of cellulose.
The filling itself will prevent caries, but oxidation acts as an assistant.
It must have been new when this world froze, for there was no sign of corrosion or oxidation.
Great advances have been made since the first early guesses that the light was due to phosphorus and was a kind of oxidation.
The heat generated by this oxidation is the source of the heat of the body.
