    Hydrogen Peroxide & Inorganic Peroxy Compounds Hydrogen Peroxide Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is the simplest peroxide (a compound with an oxygen-oxygen single bond). It is also a strong oxidizer. Hydrogen peroxide is a clear liquid‚ slightly more viscous than water. In dilute solution‚ it appears colorless.  Reactions Decomposition Hydrogen peroxide decomposes exothermically into water and oxygen gas spontaneously: 2 H2O2 → 2 H2O + O2 This process is thermodynamically favorable. It has

    of this study was to test the rate of reactivity of the enzyme catalase on hydrogen peroxide while subject to different concentrations of an inhibitor. The hypothesis was that hydrogen peroxide will be broken down by catalase into hydrogen and oxygen‚ where a higher concentration of inhibitor will yield less oxygen‚ resultant of a lower rate of reaction. Crushed potato samples of equal weight were placed in hydrogen peroxide solutions of various temperatures. The results showed that less gas was produced

    An investigation to compare the reaction rates between potato and hydrogen peroxide against liver and hydrogen peroxide through loss in mass. Background information: Catalase is an enzyme that is found in all cells. This means that it is an intracellular enzyme. And enzyme is a biological catalyst. A catalyst is some thing that speeds up a reaction without being changed itself. Because of this enzymes and catalysts can be used again and again. Enzymes are protein chains that have a primary‚ secondary

    Biology investigation: Liver and hydrogen peroxide By Cuong Tran Abstract: The purpose of this investigation was to determine the optimum temperature for enzyme activity. The stated hypothesis was that 37oC would be the optimum temperature for liver enzymes to break down hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen. The dependent variable was to measure the amount of foam being produced‚ while testing 4 different temperatures with 3 repetitions each. Out of the 12 trials only 2 outliers were found

    Determination of the Enthalpy for Decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide Objective: To construct a coffee cup calorimeter‚ measure its calorimeter constant‚ and determine the enthalpy of decomposition and formation of hydrogen peroxide. Background: This experiment is a classic thermodynamics lab. In it‚ we attempt to measure the enthalpy (H) of a chemical reaction. The main obstacle is that this is a quantity that cannot be measured directly. It instead is observed as heat from one substance is transferred

    goggles and an apron or lab coat to protect our eyes and clothes. As we are using enzymes and Hydrogen Peroxide we need to be extra careful‚ ensuring they don’t come into contact with our eyes‚ skin or clothes. Catalyse is an enzyme found in all living cells. It makes Hydrogen Peroxide decompose into water and Oxygen. We will be measuring the amount of Oxygen released from the Hydrogen Peroxide. In order to do this we will use a measuring cylinder. This piece of apparatus measures the
