H2O2

The chemistry get more complex with hydrogen peroxide. H2O2 is water with an extra oxygen molecule attached. Water has a covalent bond which is very stable under most conditions. Thus water is often expressed in chemistry as HOH which gives a clearer picture of the nature of the molecule. The hydrog...

H2O2 stability and pH

Hydrogen peroxide is very unstable. At higher concentrations it was used to fuel the one-man rocket pack developed by the US Army in the 1950's. At 35% concentration it is a strong oxidizer. I once used very small amounts (100 ml in 1800 gal with a BOD of 500mg/l) to decrease BOD in Wastewater. In f...
