An oxoacid is a compound that contains hydrogen, oxygen, and at least one other element, with at least one hydrogen atom bond to oxygen that can dissociate to produce the H⁺ cation and the anion of the acid. Oxoacids are stronger if they have more oxygen atoms, have very electronegative anions, or have resonance. All of these factors contribute to a more stable anion because of the delocalization of charge from the negative O atom after the H+ cation is given to water to produce hydronium.
Oxoacids are acids that contain oxygen. To be more specific, oxoacids are acids that contain oxygen, contain at least one other element, have at least one hydrogen atom bonded to oxygen, and form an ion by the loss of one or more protons in solution.
