How to Dilute 35% Hydrogen Peroxide to 3% Hydrogen Peroxide:

  1. 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide
  2. Deionized distilled water
  3. A clean, empty Gallon bottle for the final 3% hydrogen peroxide solution
  4. Measuring cup
  5. Funnel
  6. Safety goggles
  7. Rubber gloves
  8. Apron or old clothes

Steps to perform dilution:

  1. Wear safety goggles, rubber gloves, an apron or old clothing to protect yourself from spills and splashes.  Choose a well-ventilated space.
  2. Mix 1 part 35% hydrogen peroxide with 11 parts distilled water.

Example: Mix 1 cup hydrogen peroxide, with 11 cups of distilled water. 

To be exact, this will make a slightly less than 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide – 2.92%.

What Is Hydrogen Peroxide?

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a chemical compound composed of two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms. It is a clear, colorless liquid with a slightly more viscous consistency than water. Hydrogen peroxide is commonly used for its powerful oxidizing properties and has a wide range of applications in various industries and household settings.

What Are The Properties Of Hydrogen Peroxide?

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a clear, colorless liquid with several notable properties:

  1. Chemical Formula: H2O2 - It consists of two hydrogen atoms (H) and two oxygen atoms (O) linked by a single covalent bond, as well as a second oxygen atom connected to one of the hydrogen atoms by a single covalent bond.

  2. Molecular Weight: Approximately 34.01 grams per mole.

  3. Physical State: Hydrogen peroxide is a liquid at room temperature and pressure (25°C or 77°F).

  4. Odor: It has a slightly sharp and distinctive odor.

  5. Solubility: Hydrogen peroxide is miscible (mixes completely) with water in all proportions.

  6. Density: The density of hydrogen peroxide varies with concentration. A common concentration of 3% hydrogen peroxide has a density of approximately 1.01 grams per milliliter (g/mL).

  7. Boiling Point: The boiling point of hydrogen peroxide is approximately 150.2°C (302.4°F).

  8. Melting Point: Pure hydrogen peroxide does not have a distinct melting point because it decomposes before reaching a stable liquid state at atmospheric pressure.

  9. Reactivity: Hydrogen peroxide is a powerful oxidizing agent and is highly reactive with various substances, including organic compounds and some metals. It readily decomposes into water and oxygen when exposed to heat, light, or certain catalysts.

  10. Concentration: Hydrogen peroxide is available in various concentrations, with common household solutions typically being around 3%. Higher concentrations, such as 30% or 35%, are used in industrial and laboratory applications.

  11. pH: The pH of hydrogen peroxide solutions varies with concentration but is typically slightly acidic.

  12. Stability: Hydrogen peroxide solutions are not indefinitely stable and can decompose over time, especially when exposed to light, heat, or contaminants. Storing hydrogen peroxide in a cool, dark place in a well-sealed container helps preserve its stability.

  13. Safety: Concentrated hydrogen peroxide solutions can be hazardous and should be handled with care. Contact with skin or eyes should be avoided, and protective equipment may be required when working with high-concentration solutions.

These properties make hydrogen peroxide a versatile chemical with various applications in industries ranging from healthcare and cosmetics to water treatment and rocket propulsion. The concentration and handling precautions should be considered based on the specific use and requirements of the application.

What Is Hydrogen Peroxide Used For?

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is used for a wide range of purposes in various industries and household settings due to its versatile properties. Some common uses of hydrogen peroxide include:

  1. Disinfectant and Antiseptic: Hydrogen peroxide is a common disinfectant and antiseptic agent. It is used to clean wounds, cuts, and minor injuries to prevent infection. In lower concentrations (typically 3%), it can be safely applied to the skin.

  2. Hair Bleaching and Dyeing: Many hair bleaching and hair dyeing products contain hydrogen peroxide as it can help break down the natural pigments in hair, lightening its color.

  3. Teeth Whitening: Hydrogen peroxide is used in some teeth whitening products and dental treatments to remove stains and discoloration from teeth.

  4. Cleaning Agent: It is used as a cleaning agent for surfaces, fabrics, and contact lenses due to its ability to break down and remove organic stains and deposits.

  5. Water Treatment: In water treatment processes, hydrogen peroxide can be used to remove contaminants, oxidize organic matter, and disinfect water supplies.

  6. Rocket Propellant: In the aerospace industry, highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide (usually around 90% purity) is used as a rocket propellant.
