Caption: Hydrogen peroxide decomposition. Animation of molecules of the inorganic chemical hydrogen peroxide and its decomposition reaction. Atoms are represented as coloured spheres joined by molecular bonds. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) consists of two atoms of oxygen (red) and two atoms of hydrogen (grey). The animation shows two molecules of hydrogen peroxide colliding and reacting to break and form bonds. The products are two molecules of water (H2O) and one of oxygen (O2, forming a double bond). Hydrogen peroxide is a colourless liquid. It is unstable and naturally decomposes very slowly at room temperature to form liquid water and oxygen gas. Hydrogen peroxide is a powerful oxidizer, used as a bleach and as a reagent in the chemical industry.
