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.
It is composed of silica, alumina, carbonate of lime, magnesia and oxide of iron.
When heated in a tube, oxide of selenium of a carmine red rises along with selenic acid, white and deliquescent.
The oxide zones of many ore bodies are formed by these processes.
The brown and yellow colours which stalagmitic marbles usually present are due to the presence of oxide of iron.
The oxide and the carbonate are probably products of surface weathering.
Take care to avoid loss, and, when cold, weigh the oxide formed.
In general, then, an oxide is a compound of oxygen with another element.
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.
