Acid-base characteristics of oxides
The acid-base characteristics of oxides are reflected in the way they
react with water and / or acids and bases.
Metal oxides are basic - they react with acids and/or produce OH(aq) in
Most non-metal oxides are acidic - they react with bases and/or produce
acids when added to water.
Amphoteric oxides react with acids and bases.
