from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

  • n. A compound formed by the action of hydroxylamine on an aldehyde (aldoxime) or a ketone (ketoxime). The oximes contain the atomic grouping=C:N.OH. They have played an important part in the study of the stereochemistry of nitrogen. Their formation indicates the presence of carbonyl oxygen in the substances from which they are derived.
