The zirconium alloy will react with water to produce hydrogen and oxide, but it also produces heat that has to be removed.
The ingredients in alkaline glazes are soda-ash, whiting, feldspar, flint and oxide of tin.
In general, then, an oxide is a compound of oxygen with another element.
When heated in a tube, oxide of selenium of a carmine red rises along with selenic acid, white and deliquescent.
Iron, for example, occurs largely in the form of the oxide Fe2O3.
The brown and yellow colours which stalagmitic marbles usually present are due to the presence of oxide of iron.
It is composed of silica, alumina, carbonate of lime, magnesia and oxide of iron.
Take care to avoid loss, and, when cold, weigh the oxide formed.
The oxide zones of many ore bodies are formed by these processes.
Silica was almost certainly an oxide; but electro-negative oxides are, as a class, acids; therefore silica was probably an acid.
oxide ox·ide (ŏk'sīd')
A binary compound of an element or a radical with oxygen.
