Calcium peroxide is a pale yellow, granular or powdered solid oxidizer. Exposure to calcium peroxide can cause irritation to the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract. Ingestion should be avoided at all concentrations. Calcium peroxide is not persistent in the environment and slowly decomposes to form calcium hydroxide and oxygen.
Calcium peroxide or calcium dioxide is the inorganic compound with the formula CaO2. It is the peroxide (O22−) salt of Ca2+. Commercial samples can be yellowish, but the pure compound is white. It is almost insoluble in water.
Calcium peroxide can be used in agriculture to release oxygen into soils or as a seed pretreatment. It also stimulates the aerobic microbial degradation of hydrocarbons in contaminated groundwater and soil. Consumers would be exposed to only very small amounts of calcium peroxide in consumer product applications such as toothpastes. Calcium peroxide is a solid chemical used as a source of oxygen or hydrogen peroxide. When placed in water, calcium peroxide begins to decompose and release oxygen.
Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.
