A deoxidizer is a chemical compound used in a reaction or process to remove oxygen. In comparison with antioxidants, deoxidizers are not used for stabilization during storage but for oxygen removal during manufacture. Deoxidizers are mainly used in metallurgy, to decrease the content of oxygen in metals.
