Expert Answer:

Nitrogen (N) forms oxides in which nitrogen exhibits each of its positive oxidation numbers from +1 to +5.

Nitrogen oxide can refer to a binary compound of oxygen and nitrogen, or a mixture of such compounds:

  • Nitric oxide, also known as nitrogen monoxide, (NO), nitrogen(II) oxide
  • Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), nitrogen(IV) oxide
  • Nitrous oxide (N2O), nitrogen(I) oxide
  • Nitrosylazide (N4O), nitrogen(I) oxide + diatomic nitrogen
  • Nitrate radical (NO3), nitrogen(VI) oxide
  • Dinitrogen trioxide (N2O3), nitrogen(III) oxide
  • Dinitrogen tetroxide (N2O4), nitrogen(IV) oxide
  • Dinitrogen pentoxide (N2O5), nitrogen(V) oxide
  • Trinitramide (N(NO2)3)
