Question

Write chemical reactions to justify that hydrogen peroxide can function as an oxidizing as well as reducing agent.

Solution

As an oxidising agent

2Fe2+  (aq) + 2H+(aq) +H2O2(aq) ———–> 2Fe3+  (aq) + 2 H2O(l)

As a reducing agent

I2(s) + H2O2 (aq) + 2OH (aq) ———> 2I (aq) + 2 H2O(l) + O2(g)

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
