Question and answer
Why mineral acide do added to the hydrogen perioxide
Acidified hydrogen peroxide solutions, however, are more stable than the alkaline solutions and it is therefore preferred that for transportation and storage purposes the solutions be of an acid character. [ However, merely acidifying the peroxide with a mineral acid does not impart sufficient stability for transportation and storage purposes. Certain additional stabilizers have been proposed for such acid, relatively highconcentration, peroxide solutions but they have been of an unsatisfactory nature for several reasons. Many organic stabilizers are very effective in retarding the
decomposition of impure hydrogen peroxide and their use adds very little to the peroxide production costs. However, organic stabilizers have undesirable properties. Materials such as salicylic acid or acetanilide form colored solutions if there are traces of iron salts in the bleach bath in which the peroxide is subsequently used, or the peroxide solution itself may become colored, due to the oxidation of these organic stabilizers. ]
