Hydrogen is a chemical inorganic compound. A colourless liquid, H2 o2 soluble in water and used as a mild antiseptic, bleaching agent(especially bleaching hair), oxidizing agent and chemical reagent.
Mild antiseptic: used on the skin to prevent infections or minor cults, scrapes and burns. It may be used as a mouth rinse, to help remove mucus or to relieve minor mouth irritation.
For mouth rinse, mix with an equal amount of water before using.(do not swallow the product).
This chemical works by releasing oxygen when applied to affected area of injuries; deep wounds, animal bites, or serious burns.
When we say oxidizing agent; it is a substance that has the ability to oxidize other substance- in other words, to accept their electrons. This oxidizing agents includes; Oxygen, Hydrogen peroxide, Fluorine, Chlorine, Ozone, Sulfuric acid, Nutric acid & Nitrate compounds, Sodium perborate, Nitrous acid and Hypochlorite.
NOTE: Hydrogen peroxide is unstable and slowly decomposes in the presence of light. Because of its instability, hydrogen peroxide is typically stored with a stabilizer in a weakly acidic solution. Hydrogen Peroxide is found in biological systems including the human body.
The boiling point of H2O2 has been extrapolated as being 150.2c, approximately 50.c higher than water. In practice, hydrogen peroxide will undergo potentially explosive thermal decomposition if heated to this temperature, it may safely distilled at lower temperatures under reduced pressure.
