HYDROGEN PEROXIDE 20%
HYDROGEN PEROXIDE CHARACTERISTICS AND PROPERTIES
The molecular formula for hydrogen peroxide is H2O2. It has a molecular weight of 34.014 g/mol. The chemical is a very pale blue liquid. It is colorless in a dilute solution. It has a bitter taste in its liquid form and is just slightly more viscous than water. Hydrogen Peroxide has a sharp odor and its gaseous form occurs naturally in the air in small amounts.
Because it is unstable, hydrogen peroxide will decompose easily into water and oxygen when it releases heat or is in the presence of another base or catalyst. For this reason, it is usually stored with a stabilizer in a weakly acidic solution.
In diluted form, hydrogen peroxide presents little danger to humans and the environment, but in concentrated form this chemical needs to be handled with caution. It is nonflammable but can cause spontaneous combustion in contact with certain organic materials. Its boiling point is 150.2° C, which is 50° C higher than water.
