Acid-Base Behavior of 100 Element Oxides: Visual and Mathematical Representations

Authors: Kurushkin M.V., Dmitry Kurushkin


A novel educational chart that represents the acid−base behavior of 100 s-, p-, d-, and f-element oxides depending on the element’s electronegativity and oxidation state was designed. An updated periodic table of said oxides was developed. A mathematical criterion based on the chart was derived which allows prediction of the behavior of unfamiliar oxides.
