What is hydrogen peroxide?
With the formula H2O2, hydrogen peroxide is the simplest peroxide (compound with an oxygen-oxygen double bond). It forms a colourless solution with a sharp taste and slightly more viscous than water, commonly used as a disinfectant and bleaching agent in cosmetic products. It can be used as a propellant or explosives, as well as in glow sticks or hydroponics.
It’s soluble in alcohol, but insoluble in petroleum ether.
Its boiling point is estimated to be around 150 degree Celsius, but in practical terms, it undergoes thermal decomposition before it reaches that temperature in quite an explosive manner. Interestingly, when mixed with water it forms a eutectic mixture. This means when the two compounds – H2O and H2O2 – are mixed together, the freezing point is considerably lower than either of individual freezing points. It goes from 0 degree Celsius in water and -0.43 degree Celsius for pure hydrogen peroxide to -51 degree Celsius with a 50% solution. A similar effect also happens with the boiling point, which in theory should be around 125 degree Celsius, but it is in fact 114 degree Celsius.
