Oxidenoun

a binary compound of oxygen with another element or group

‘nitrogen oxide’;

Nitridenoun

a compound containing nitrogen and a more electropositive element (such as phosphorus or a metal)

Oxide

An oxide () is a chemical compound that contains at least one oxygen atom and one other element in its chemical formula. itself is the dianion of oxygen, an O2– (molecular) ion.

‘Oxide’;

Nitridenoun

a binary compound of nitrogen with a more electropositive element.

Nitrideverb

heat (steel) in the presence of ammonia or other nitrogenous material so as to increase hardness and corrosion resistance.

Nitride

In chemistry, a nitride is a compound of nitrogen where nitrogen has a formal oxidation state of −3. Nitrides are a large class of compounds with a wide range of properties and applications.The nitride ion, N3−, is never encountered in protic solution because it is so basic that it would be protonated immediately.
