298 K

Additional information

The vapour pressure of hydrogen peroxide at 25 °C was given as 299 Pa (Weast et al. 1986), which was determined by calculation. The vapour pressure of aqueous solutions of hydrogen peroxide exhibiting varying concentrations of the substance was determined in a dynamic system using an equilibrium still (Schumb et al. 1955). The experimental vapour pressure of pure hydrogen peroxide at 25 °C was approximately 260 Pa, which is slightly lower than the value obtained by the calculation method. The experiments showed that the vapour pressure of aqueous hydrogen peroxide solutions decreases with increasing concentration of hydrogen peroxide.
