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. Due to its
oxidizing properties, hydrogen peroxide is often used as a bleach
or cleaning agent. The oxidizing capacity of hydrogen peroxide is
so strong that it is considered a highly reactive oxygen species.
Hydrogen peroxide is therefore used as a propellant in rocketry.
Organisms also naturally produce hydrogen peroxide as a by-product
of oxidative metabolism. Consequently, nearly all living things (
specifically, all obligate and facultative aerobes) possess enzymes
known as catalase peroxidases, which harmlessly and catalytically
decompose low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide to water and
