Invented in 1912, Formica was originally conceived as a substitute for the mineral mica, which was commonly used at the time for electrical insulation. Because the new product acted as a substitute "for mica," it was coined Formica, coincidentally
, a preexisting Latin word for a genus of ant insects.
Iodine is a chemical agent with the symbol I and atomic number 53. The name comes from the Greek ἰοειδής ioeidēs, meaning violet or purple. Iodine and its compounds are primarily used for nutrition, in modern medicine as an X-ray contrast material and industrially, in the production of acetic acids. A relatively rare element, iodine is most highly concentrated in oceans and brine pools. It is the heaviest essential element utilized widely in biological functions. Iodine deficiency affects about two billion people and is the leading preventable cause of intellectual disabilities.
Oxide is a chemical compound that contains at least one oxygen atom and one other element in its chemical formula. Most of the Earth's crust consists of solid oxides, the result of elements being oxidized by the oxygen in air or in water. Hydrocarbon combustion affords the two principal carbon oxides: carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. Even materials considered pure elements often develop an oxide coating.
