In mathematics, in the field of topology, a topological space is said to be pseudonormal if given two disjoint closed sets in it, one of which is countable, there are disjoint open sets containing them.[1] Note the following:

An example of a pseudonormal Moore space that is not metrizable was given by F. B. Jones (1937), in connection with the conjecture that all normal Moore spaces are metrizable.[1][2]
