A hydrate; a substance containing hydrogen and oxygen, made by combining water with an oxide, and yielding water by elimination. The hydroxides are regarded as compounds of hydroxyl, united usually with basic element or radical; as, calcium hydroxide ethyl hydroxide.
A compound consisting of an element or radical combined with the radical OH-hypersthene.
a designation that is given for basic compounds containing the OH radical. When these substances are dissolved in water, they increase the pH of the solution. See base.
refers to the OH- ion.
The ion formed by an oxygen and hydrogen atom. The term used to describe the anionic radical ( ) that is responsible for the alkalinity of a solution. Hydroxides include sodium hydroxide (NaOH).

(hy-drox´-ide) A type of oxide characterized by the linkage of a metallic element or radical with the ion OH, such as brucite, Mg(OH)2.
The ion formed by an oxygen and a hydrogen atom.
A chemical compound containing hydroxyl (OH-) ion.
In chemistry, hydroxide is the most common name for a diatomic anion OH− consisting of oxygen and hydrogen usually derived from the dissociation of a base. It is one of the simplest of the diatomic ions.
