Reference Entry
A definition of the term "oxyiodide" is presented. It refers to a compound of iodine and oxygen with an element or radical. The term originated from the Greek words "oxys," meaning sharp, and "hydor," meaning water, and "kephale," meaning brain. The reference entry is from the "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary," published by F.A. Davis Co. The pronunciation of the term is also provided.
