Chemical Superoxides

Name Superoxides
CAS Type 1 Name Superoxide
Equivalent Terms Superoxide | Superoxide Anion | Superoxide Radical
CAS Registry Number 11062-77-4
Definition Highly reactive compounds produced when oxygen is reduced by a single electron. In biological systems, they may be generated during the normal catalytic function of a number of enzymes and during the oxidation of hemoglobin to METHEMOGLOBIN. In living organisms, SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE protects the cell from the deleterious effects of superoxides.
