What is the difference between an amphoteric oxide and a neutral oxide?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 19th Apr, 2016, 12:30: PM
An amphoteric oxide behaves as an acid in the presence of bases and as a base in the presence of acids. On the other hand a neutral oxide behaves neither as a base nor as an acid.
