Hydrogen Peroxide, 30%, 500ml #014-4401
Hydrogen Peroxide, 30%, 500ml
Chemical Name:
Hydrogen Peroxide, 30%
CAS Number:
Chemical Formula:

Detailed Product Description:


Colorless liquid.  Odorless.  Soluble in water and alcohol.


Commonly used in bleaching and deodorizing of textiles, and as a constituent


in cleaning agents in the semiconductor industry.  Sometimes used as a substitute


for chlorine in water and sewage treatment.





This is 30% concentration, Semiconductor Grade, low-particulate, with


a minimum purity of 99.9%.





Hydrogen peroxide is a very pale blue liquid, slightly more viscous than


water, that appears colorless in dilute solution.  It is a weak acid, has strong


oxidizing properties, and is a powerful bleaching agent.  It is used as a


disinfectant, antiseptic, oxidizer, and in rocketry as a propellant.  The


oxidizing capacity of hydrogen peroxide is so strong that it is considered


a highly reactive oxygen species.



Aqueous hydrogen peroxide solutions have specific properties that are


different from those of the pure chemical due to hydrogen bonding


between water and hydrogen peroxide molecules.  Specifically, hydrogen


peroxide and water form a eutectic mixture, exhibiting freezing-point


depression.  While pure water melts and freezes at approximately 273K,


and pure hydrogen peroxide just 0.4K below that, a 50% (by volume)


solution melts and freezes at 221 K.



H2O2 is one of the most powerful oxidizers known—stronger than


chlorine, chlorine dioxide, and potassium permanganate.  Also, through


catalysis, H2O2 can be converted into hydroxyl radicals (OH) with


reactivity second only to fluorine.



Application Notes:


Diluted H2O2 (between 3% and 12%) is used to bleach human hair when


mixed with ammonia.  It is absorbed by skin upon contact and creates a


local skin capillary embolism which appears as a temporary whitening of


the skin.  The strength of a solution may be described as a percentage or


volume, where 1% hydrogen peroxide releases 3.3 volumes of oxygen


during decomposition.  Thus, a 3% solution is equivalent to 10 volume


and a 6% solution to 20 volume, etc.



3% H2O2 is used medically for cleaning wounds, removing dead tissue,


and as an oral debriding agent. Peroxide stops slow (small vessel) wound


bleeding/oozing, as well.  Most over-the-counter peroxide solutions are


not suitable for ingestion.



3% H2O2 is effective at treating fresh (red) blood-stains in clothing and


on other items.  It must be applied to clothing before blood stains can be


accidentally "set" with heated water. Cold water and soap are then used to


remove the peroxide treated blood.



The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified


hydrogen peroxide as a Low Regulatory Priority (LRP) drug for use in


controlling fungus on fish and fish eggs.



Some horticulturalists and users of hydroponics advocate the use of


weak hydrogen peroxide solution ("Spanish water") in watering solutions.  


Its spontaneous decomposition releases oxygen that enhances a plant's root


development and helps to treat root rot (cellular root death due to lack of


oxygen) and a variety of other pests.



Hydrogen peroxide is a strong oxidizer effective in controlling sulfide


and organic related odors in wastewater collection and treatment systems.  


It is typically applied to a wastewater system where there is a retention


time of 30 minutes to 5 hours before hydrogen sulfide is released.  


Hydrogen peroxide oxidizes the hydrogen sulfide and promotes bio-


oxidation of organic odors.  Hydrogen peroxide decomposes to oxygen


and water, adding dissolved oxygen to the system thereby negating some


Biochemical Oxygen Demand.



Hydrogen peroxide is used with phenyl oxalate ester and an appropriate


dye in glow sticks as an oxidizing agent.  It reacts with the ester to form


an unstable CO2 dimer which excites the dye to emit a photon of light


when it spontaneously relaxes back to the ground state.





Strong oxidizing agent at this concentration.  Dangerous fire and


explosion risk when in contact with organics.  Toxic and strongly


irritating to skin and tissue.
