Is a common trend for bases to have an OH or O in the formula? I know for acids that it says that they will give up a hydrogen and that bases will accept something, but do they normally have oxygen or hydroxide in them?
A lot of the strong bases are alkaline earth metal or alkali metal hydroxides, examples including KOH, NaOH, CsOH, (Ca(OH)2)), and so on. This may be why it seems like most bases have OH or O in them, but it is not necessarily a requirement. It does seem to be a trend among strong bases, however.
