Nitrous oxide - definition of Nitrous oxide in Encyclopedia (679 words)
The anaesthetic function of nitrous oxide is not completely understood, but it is thought that the gas interacts with the plasma membranes of nerve cells in the brain and thus affects the communication among such cells at their synapses.
Nitrogen oxides, nitrous oxide included, are greenhouse gasses, with 270 times the effect of carbon dioxide for producing global warming.
