peroxide

 [pĕ-rok´sīd]
that oxide of any element containing more oxygen than any other; more correctly applied to compounds having such linkage as -O-O-.

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.

peroxide

/per·ox·ide/ (-ok´sīd) that oxide of any element containing more oxygen than any other; more correctly applied to compounds having such linkage as —O—O—.

pe·rox·ide

(pĕr-ok'sīd)

Theoretical methods have been applied to determine the equilibrium geometry of unstable intermediates and also the transition structures of the chemical oxidation reactions of organic compounds with several compounds having attached a peroxidic group [4-6].
It also results in the introduction of various peroxidic and oxy functional groups at points along the polymer chain.
The resulting blockiness (from long comonomer sequence along the macromolecular chain) has a negative effect on peroxidic cross-linkability, because PP blocks are prone to [beta]-scission and cross-linking occurs only at high P[degrees] radicals concentration, when the probability that two macroradicals meet is high.
