I'm currently writing up a chemistry practical and just wondered if there was a specific word for a substance that has not been held in a container containing air (for example, magnesium not forming an oxide due to a vaccuum like condition). Is there a specific word in the same sense that anhydrous is to water or shall i just use the phrase 'non oxidised'?

Cheers in advance

I think that using the term "non oxidised" should be OK! I can't think of any specific work for it but i'm sure you will get the marks if you just explain the conditions the substance was in.
