OH!

Some of what looks like water is actually "OH" not H2O, and this hydroxyl can be a real "OH-OH."

The link you gave mentioned:

But it was unclear whether that hydrogen was in the form of hydroxyl – the chemical that makes up drain cleaners – or in the form of H2O, or water.

The NIH.gov site cites a biochemical journal about hydrogen peroxide (HOOH), which adds this:

. . . to generate hydroxyl radicals (OH.) from H2O2 has been investigated . . .

And all this, of course, was presented, just as a setup for the old H2O2 joke:

Devil on the left shoulder: “Go for it, TrueTom. They’ll fall over themselves laughing and they’ll think you SO witty. Think of the great NAME you’ll be making for yourself!”

Yes, but so far no one has answered the question: “What is H2O 4?”
