Nonoxygenous Non`ox*yg"e*nous, a. (Chem.) Without oxygen; characterized by the absence of oxygen; as, a nonoxygenous alkaloid.
oxygen acids
Acid Ac"id, n. 1. A sour substance. 2. (Chem.) One of a class of compounds, generally but not always distinguished by their sour taste, solubility in water, and reddening of vegetable blue or violet colors. They are also characterized by the power of destroying the distinctive properties of alkalies or bases, combining with them to form salts, at the same time losing their own peculiar properties. They all contain hydrogen, united with a more negative element or radical, either alone, or more generally with oxygen, and take their names from this negative element or radical. Those which contain no oxygen are sometimes called hydracids in distinction from the others which are called oxygen acids or oxacids. Note: In certain cases, sulphur, selenium, or tellurium may take the place of oxygen, and the corresponding compounds are called respectively sulphur acids or sulphacids, selenium acids, or tellurium acids. When the hydrogen of an acid is replaced by a positive element or radical, a salt is formed, and hence acids are sometimes named as salts of hydrogen; as hydrogen nitrate for nitric acid, hydrogen sulphate for sulphuric acid, etc. In the old chemistry the name acid was applied to the oxides of the negative or nonmetallic elements, now sometimes called anhydrides.
oxygenated water
Note: Although a gas, hydrogen is chemically similar to the metals in its nature, having the properties of a weak base. It is, in all acids, the base which is replaced by metals and basic radicals to form salts. Like all other gases, it is condensed by great cold and pressure to a liquid which freezes and solidifies by its own evaporation. It is absorbed in large quantities by certain metals (esp. palladium), forming alloy-like compounds; hence, in view of quasi-metallic nature, it is sometimes called hydrogenium. It is the typical reducing agent, as opposed to oxidizers, as oxygen, chlorine, etc. Bicarbureted hydrogen, an old name for ethylene. Carbureted hydrogen gas. See under Carbureted. Hydrogen dioxide, a thick, colorless liquid, H2O2, resembling water, but having a bitter, sour taste, produced by the action of acids on barium peroxide. It decomposes into water and oxygen, and is manufactured in large quantities for an oxidizing and bleaching agent. Called also oxygenated water.
Oxidator Ox"i*da`tor, n. 1. An oxidizer. [Obs.] 2. A contrivance for causing a current of air to impinge on the flame of the Argand lamp; -- called also oxygenator.
Oxygenator Ox"y*gen*a`tor, n. An oxidizer.
Oxygenic Ox`y*gen"ic, a. (Chem.) Pertaining to, containing, or resembling, oxygen; producing oxygen.
Oxygenium Ox`y*ge"ni*um, n. [NL.] (Chem.) The technical name of oxygen. [R.]
Oxygenizable Ox"y*gen*i"za*ble, a. (Chem.) Oxidizable.
Oxygenize Ox"y*gen*ize, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Oxygenized; p pr. & vb. n. Oxygenizing.] (Chem.) To oxidize.
Oxygenize Ox"y*gen*ize, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Oxygenized; p pr. & vb. n. Oxygenizing.] (Chem.) To oxidize.
Oxygenizement Ox"y*gen*ize`ment, n. Oxidation.
Oxygenize Ox"y*gen*ize, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Oxygenized; p pr. & vb. n. Oxygenizing.] (Chem.) To oxidize.
