Hi Gail,
No, Iron oxide is either FeO or Fe2O3.  Iodine is an element (atomic number 53 if my memory serves me well and its symbol is I) that belongs to the "Halogens" group.  Read more about Iodine here

Hi Gail,

There are 16 iron oxides which are chemical compounds composed of iron and oxygen.  Here are their chemical names:






Main article: iron(III) oxide-hydroxide

Iodine on the other hand, is a chemical element that has the symbol I and atomic number 53. Naturally-occurring iodine is a single isotope with 74 neutrons.

So to answer your question.  No, they are not the same.
