“Oxidane - not exactly what you think it is!”

Welcome to Oxidane

PERHAPS YOU'VE HEARD OF IT: an odorless, colorless liquid; a powerful coolant and solvent; an easily-synthesized compound used by industry, the military, commercial operations, and even private individuals.

Yes, we are talking about oxidane, also known as dihydrogen monoxide, hydrogen hydroxide, or water; and we are here to tell you that what you've heard about DHMO is probably not the whole truth.


  • Oxidane is beneficial!
  • Oxidane is environmentally safe!
  • Oxidane is benign!
  • Oxidane occurs in nature!
  • We need oxidane!

There are forces out there, such as the Dihydrogen Monoxide Research Division, who would seek to legislate its use and availability, placing heavy limitations on it-- and eventually, eradicating it entirely.

In the interest of fairness, we invite you to see their argument, and then we urge you to return here, to learn the truth. Their subversive agenda must not be allowed to prevail.

This substance is identifiable by the following names:

  • dihydrogen monoxide
  • dihydrogen oxide
  • hydric acid
  • hydrogen hydroxide
  • hydrogen oxide
  • hydroxic acid
  • hydroxylic acid
  • hydroxyl acid
  • hydronium hydroxide (for 2 atoms)
  • oxidane (IUPAC recommended)
  • water

Diagram explaning the naming of oxidane.

The IUPAC names mononuclear hydrides with the base element with the "-ane" suffix. Since oxygen pairs with two hydrogens, oxidane is OH2.

However, it is more commonly referred to as H2O. In addition, especially regarding acid-base neutralizations, HOH is another popular representation of it.


Why do we support the use of oxidane? Hopefully these paragraphs will provide some insight on this matter!



It has been shown that oxidane enhances the functionality, growth, and health of many forms of life—including humans!—and current research suggests that it has become an integral part of our planet's ecological balance.[1]


Environmentally Safe!

Opponents of dihydrogen monoxide would have you believe that it is some kind of uber-toxin, and that it wreaks caustic terror on anything it touches. This couldn't be farther from the truth; when handled properly, it enhances nature rather than destroys it, and even a worst-case scenario DHMO accident would be a trifle for the natural cycles of our world to handle.[1]



Many have popularized the label "dihydrogen monoxide" over the more IUPAC-compliant "oxidane" because they know how loaded the former name is. "Monoxide" has become synonymous with pollution, toxic gases, industrial waste—and while oxidane is sometimes a factor in these problems facing our world today, it is rarely the dangerous element.[1]


WE NEED oxidane!

Don't let an uneducated and terror-stricken mob of fanatics railroad you into their insanity!

Support the use and distribution of oxidane in your neighborhood, city, state, country, and world! take action...


Hopefully by now you can identify what oxidane looks like. If not, feel free to look at these following images:
