An Acidity Scale for Binary Oxides.
Smith, Derek W.
Journal of Chemical Education, v64 n6 p480-81 Jun 1987
Discusses the classification of binary oxides as acidic, basic, or amphoteric. Demonstrates how a numerical scale for acidity/basicity of binary oxides can be constructed using thermochemical data for oxoacid salts. Presents the calculations derived from the data that provide the numeric scale values. (TW)
