    Are you certain a reaction has actually occurred?

    Perhaps the [tex]ZnO_2[/tex] has merely been dispersed into the polymer, and not actually reacted.

    Also, are you sure you are using [tex]ZnO_2[/tex] and not [tex]ZnO[/tex]? (I didn't know there was a [tex]ZnO_2[/tex] -.-)

    There is; Zinc Peroxide. The oxidation number of oxygen should be -1 in this compound.
