Some acidic oxides include SO2, CO2, NO2, ClO2 and some basic oxides include CaO and BaO

Basic oxides are oxides that form a base in water and acidic oxides are oxides that form an acid when in water. Basic oxides are generally group 1 and 2 elements (example: CaO + H2O --> Ca(OH)2). Acidic oxides are typically groups 14-17 (example: SO2 + H2O --> H2SO3)
