Definitions for "Oxidation"
Keywords:  rust, valence, redox, rancid, oxygen
Process by which oxygen is added to metals. Causes corrosion.
Chemical reaction process that generally involves breakdown through combining with oxygen. Both burning and cellular respiration are examples of oxidation. In both cases, organic matter is combined with oxygen and broken down to carbon dioxide and water.
the loss of electrons; a process that involves a complete or partial loss of electrons or a gain of oxygen; it results in an increase in the oxidation state of an atom. (see reduction)
The chemical change which occurs on the surface of the plate when it is exposed to air for an extended period. Oxidized plates will not clean up and will print a tint where the air has attacked the plate.
Wine exposed to air will soon turn to vinegar. Red wines seem to oxidise quicker than whites.
The decomposing of wine due to over aging or exposure to air.
Keywords:  hazy, dull, steaks, quicker, paint
Damage to dry paint caused by atmospheric conditions.
Oxidation is the dulling and/or hazy appearance of a vehicle's top paint or clear coat finish. Oxidation is caused by accumulated exposure to ultraviolet light and environmental pollution. Black, red and dark color paints oxidize quicker because these pigments absorb more ultraviolet light than light color paints.
The effects of weathering or outdoor exposure on painted surfaces. Oxidation results in a dull or hazy finish. It can be corrected by removing the oxidized layer of the finish. Depending on the severity of the oxidation, this may be accomplished using cleaner wax, rubbing compound, polish or a machine glaze. If the paint finish is a metallic finish then power polishing is not very effective as the small metallic particles can be exposed to the atmosphere resulting in light steaks to the polished paint
The act or process of oxidizing, or the state or result of being oxidized.
The process of cellular decomposition and breakdown. Oxidation can produce free radicals.
Process of cellular decomposition and breakdown. Oxidation produces free radicals.
The formation of an oxide layer on a metal surface. When oxidation occurs because of welding, it is visible as discoloration. The discoloration or heat tint produced by oxidation has been associated with the onset of corrosion in stainless steel piping systems.
One of the processes which contributes to corrosion.
The breaking down of the alloy external surface. Turns to a powdered insulating coating that for maximum cooling, needs to be cleaned off every few years, acidic cleaning works best. A much slower process than the corrosion of copper fins, at least 400% slower
Wood is an organic material and thus changes properties over time. Most often we notice the change in color. Natural cherry changes from a blondish pink to a russet red; mahogany from orange to red-brown; maple from white yellow to a buttery gold.
When a packaged beer is stored for a period of time, it stales, or oxidizes. Different beers stale at different rates and develop off flavors. The rate of oxidation goes up as the temperature goes up. Oxidation is familiar to drinkers as a papery or cardboard like character in both taste and aroma.
The cellular "burning" of glucose, amino acids, and fatty acids to produce energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the major form of energy used by cells.
The burning up of unwanted organic waste found in pool water.
the combustion, or burning of any material. Oxidation breaks down organic material into raw minerals and energy (which is released in the form of heat).

a mechanism that macrophages use to damage intracellular Salmonella , and suggest that BER-mediated repair of this damage may be important in the establishment of Salmonella infection
Firing a kiln with an oxidizing atmosphere, one which has an adequate supply of air, to enable metals in clays and glazes to give their oxide colors, greens from copper and honey colors from iron. Electric kilns give oxidizing firing unless a reducing agent is introduced.
(Antiqued) Darkening or other color changes of metal which is accelerated by humidity, especially salty air or the presence of acidic perspiration. This does not happen to very high-karat gold or stainless steel.
Keywords:  clairoxide, creme, tint, pure, white
The development of the tint after Clairoxide or Pure White Creme Developer is added.
an indirect effect of its ability to promote peroxisome proliferation
Keywords:  chlorine, dough, bread, shock, reacts
One of the many ways by which the handling properties of dough can be improved so as to improve the quality of bread. It is brought about by substances referred to as oxidants, improvers or maturing agents.
Removal of organic wastes by shock treating water with non-chlorine shock as oxidizer.
a process in which an oxidizer (commonly air or chlorine) reacts with a dissolved substance to convert it into a solid form that can be filtered
The tough, outer coat on lead came that must be wirebrushed before soldering.
a major contributor to the death of dopaminergic neurons in PD
The formation of an oxide; the curing mechanisms for alkyds.
The growth of a layer of silicon dioxide on a silicon surface.
