Nitrogen oxide may refer to a binary compound of oxygen and nitrogen, or a mixture of such compounds:
- (Pron. "knocks"), = NO + the free radical NO2, defined as such due to the rapid gas-phase inter-conversion between NO and NO2. NO2dimerises to liquid N2O4 under pressure.
- NOy = the sum of all oxidized odd-Nitrogen species (e.g. NOx + HNO3 + HONO + etc.)
- NOz = NOy - NOx
- Nitric oxide, also known as nitrogen monoxide (NO), nitrogen(II) oxide
- Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), nitrogen(IV) oxide
- Nitrous oxide (N2O), nitrogen(-I,III) oxide
- Nitrosylazide (N4O), nitrogen(-I,0,I,II) oxide
- Oxatetrazole (N4O)
- Dinitrogen trioxide (N2O3), nitrogen(II,IV) oxide
- Dinitrogen tetroxide (N2O4), nitrogen(IV) oxide
- Dinitrogen pentoxide (N2O5), nitrogen(V) oxide
- Trinitramide (N(NO2)3 or N4O6), nitrogen(0,IV) oxides
In atmospheric chemistry,
- (or NOx) refers to the sum of NO and NO2.
- (or NOy) = the sum of all oxidised atmospheric odd-nitrogen.
- (or NOz) = NOy - NOx
