What is Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)?
Hydrogen peroxide, or H2O2 to use its chemical name, is a clear liquid made up of water (H2O) but with an extra oxygen atom - H2O2. It is an unstable molecule and over time will break down into water and oxygen gas. However this decomposition happens extremely slowly unless there is a catalyst to help speed the process up. It is the free oxygen atom that is looking to bind to other molecules that gives H2O2 its strong oxidising qualities and beneficial properties.
Diluting Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen Peroxide can be diluted to make weaker solutions but it must only be diluted with Distilled Water (available from the Home Page) to prevent the extra oxygen content reacting with the contaminants in tap water.
