Analysis of Hydrogen Peroxide: A Redox Titration—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Regarded as an “environmentally friendly” alternative to chlorine for water purification and wastewater treatment, hydrogen peroxide decomposes with heat, light or other catalysts, but as such, its quality must be checked regularly. With the Analysis of Hydrogen Peroxide: A Redox Titration—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, analyze the percent hydrogen peroxide in a common “drugstore” solution by titrating it with potassium permanganate.
