How to Make oxygen from permanganate and hydrogen peroxide

C For Chemistry delves into the chemistry of science experiments. This chemist knows what he's talking about. These chemistry experiments are not only fun, but very educational for all of those interested in scientific chemical reactions and properties.

This video tutorial will show you how to make oxygen from permanganate and hydrogen peroxide.

HOW TO:
1. Simply add a spoonful of Permanganate crystal to the beaker.
2. Add 20mL of 50% Hydrogen peroxide to it.
3. Cloud of steam and oxygen splash into air!

CHEMISTRY OF IT:
It is a reaction between 50% Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and Potassium permanganate (KMnO4) . It is a very vigorous reaction which steam (H2O) and Oxygen (O2) are the desired products, side products include Manganese(IV) oxide (MnO2) and trace amount of Potassium compound.
