Differentiate between oxide, a peroxide, and a superoxide?

  • Chemistry PLZ HELP!!!!! -

    In terms of ionic compounds an oxide contain the oxide ion (O2-) Which is a single oxygen atom with a 2- charge.
    A peroxide contains the peroxide ion (O22-) which is a particle of two oxygen atoms bonded together and has a 2- charge. Unlike most normal oxides, peroxides tend to be oxidizers or at the very least, unstable.
    A superoxide contains the superoxide ion (O2-) which consists of two oxygen atoms bonded together and has a 1- charge. This ion is even more strongly oxidizing than the peroxide ion.

    In covalent compounds oxides are substances that contain oxygen in the 2- oxidation state and not bonded ot other oxygen atoms.
    Peroxide contain a peroxide group (O2) in which each oxygen atom is bonded to the other oxygen an to another atom, typically carbon or hydrogen. IN this case oxygen is in the 1- oxidation state.

    Laruen gave you good answers.
    I use
    The oxidation state of oxygen in oxides is -2. In peroxides it is -1. In super oxides it is -1/2.
