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—.

It is interesting to note about this spectrum the presence of an absorption peak corresponding to the peroxidic O-O bond, which is characteristic for this sort of compound.
The observed shift beyond the usual range could be due to the presence of the two peroxidic chemical bonds at the ring.
Possible examples for this direction already exist in the open literature, such as clay modification by peroxidic (79), sulfur-containg and complex building compounds.
It is also known that any kind of blockiness, resulting from the occurrence of long comonomer sequences along the macromolecular chain, has a negative influence on the softness and, at the same time, can affect the peroxidic cross-linkability of the material: PP blocks show a high tendency towards visbreaking whereas PE blocks tend to cross-link.
