To combine with oxygen, or subject to the action of oxygen, or of an oxidizing agent.
To combine with oxygen or with more oxygen; to add oxygen to; as, to oxidize nitrous acid so as to form nitric acid.
To remove hydrogen from (anything), as by the action of oxygen; as, to oxidize alcohol so as to form aldehyde.
To subject to the action of oxygen or of an oxidizing agent, so as to bring to a higher grade, as an -ous compound to an -ic compound; as, to oxidize mercurous chloride to mercuric chloride.
to combine with oxygen to burn or to rust. Water oxidizes with metals producing rust.. The normal liver of the rat utilized acted acid (vinegar) to synthesize fatty acids and oxidized (burned) it to carbon dioxide and water (New York Times. 3. to cause to lose hydrogen by the action of oxygen; dehydrogenated. To change the atoms of ions to a higher positive valence by loss of electrons. Fuel oxidizes (burns) rapidly, producing heat. Iron oxidizes (rusts) in water..
The result of surface metal combining with oxygen in the air to produce rust.
To convert an element to its oxide by combining it with oxygen. For example, one of the naturally occurring oxides of iron (Fe) is ferric oxide (Fe2 O3), also called rust or hematite.
enter into a combination with oxygen or become converted into an oxide; "This metal oxidizes easily"
to add oxygen or remove hydrogen from a molecule
The process wherein a metal mixes with oxygen and becomes rusted. Platinum and gold do not oxidize. Impurities in any alloys containing gold or platinum may oxidize but the actual metals do not.
To combine with oxygen, to dehydrogenate especially by the action of oxygen, to change (a compound) by increasing the proportion of the electronegative part or change (an element or ion) from a lower to a higher positive valence, remove one or more electrons from (an atom, ion, or molecule)
To combine with oxygen; to become rusty.
To combine with oxygen in the air.
a chemical reaction in which the reference element or compound losses electrons to another "reduced" element or compound- usually to oxygen (a powerful electron attractor). Oxidation typically results in the breaking up of complex compounds. Palustrine: of or having to do with a marsh or grassy wetland environment.
To chemically unite with oxygen.
A process in which a ball can change color or develop a surface condition due to the influence of outside contaminants; to combine chemically with oxygen; to cover with a coating of oxide of rust.
To chemically transform a substance by combining it with oxygen.
To combine with oxygen. Example: CO combined with O yields CO2
A chemical process where oxygen combines with other substances.
To increase a molecule or ion in positive valence; to lose electrons to an oxidizing agent.
The act of combining with oxygen to make an oxide.Oxidized metal is rusted.
