Applications

Sodium peroxide acts as a bleaching agent in laundry and wood pulp. It finds application in the extraction of minerals from various ores. It acts as an oxidizing agent as well as an oxygen source by reacting with carbon dioxide. Furthermore, it is used as a deodorant and an analytical reagent. It is also useful in scuba gear and in submarines.
