QUESTION

# What are some properties of nascent oxygen?

It really depends on what you mean by nascent oxygen.

The term nascent oxygen refers to oxygen that has just been made, presumably in a chemical reaction. Some people interpret this to mean O_2, which is made in many reactions, while others believe it to be a monatomic oxygen radical, which is far more reactive.

Oxygen free-radicals are extremely unstable and tend to react with just about anything they come into contact with. There are many different potential oxygen radicals, and you can learn a great deal about this kind of chemistry here .

Diatomic oxygen is considerably more stable, but still a strong oxidizer. For a lot of information about molecular oxygen, visit this site .

OK.
