Chemical Structure of Sodium Peroxide

What is Sodium Peroxide?

Sodium Peroxide is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula Na2O2. It belongs to the peroxide family. It appears as a yellow-white to yellow granular solid. On heating above the 657 °C boiling point, it decomposes to Na2O, releasing O2 (2 Na2O2 → 2 Na2O + O2).

Also, it reacts with water and undergoes hydrolysis to give sodium hydroxide and hydrogen peroxide (Na2O2 + 2 H2O → 2 NaOH + H2O2).
