pe·rox·ide

(pĕ-rok'sīd),
1. That oxide of any series that contains the greatest number of oxygen atoms; applied most correctly to compounds containing an -O-O- link, as in hydrogen peroxide (H-O-O-H); a hydroperoxide is R-O-O-H.
2. The O22- ion.
3. Any member of a class of metallic oxides that contain the peroxide ion.
