Can potassium hydroxide react with hydrogen peroxide?

Chemical products are often used in life and industry production, and also play different roles. When it is used as a chemical reagent, it can react with many other chemical reagents. So, can it react with hydrogen peroxide? The specific analysis is as follows.

Potassium hydroxide can react with hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide has weak acidity and can ionize hydrogen ions. In fact, the one-step ionization of hydrogen peroxide is much larger than the two-step ionization. So the reaction between them is like this:

 

Koh + H2O2 = kho2 + H2O (neutralize one hydrogen ion)

Koh + H2O2 = kho2 + H2O (neutralize one hydrogen ion)

Kho2 + KOH = KO2 + H20 (neutralize two hydrogen ions)

Kho2 + KOH = KO2 + H20 (neutralize two hydrogen ions)

4ko2 + 2H2O = 4koh + 3O2 (reaction between product and water, release gas)

4ko2 + 2H2O = 4koh + 3O2 (reaction between product and water, release gas)

To sum up, potassium hydroxide can react with hydrogen peroxide. In this reaction, potassium hydroxide is both the reactant and the product, that is to say, it plays the role of catalyst. Therefore, if it is put into hydrogen peroxide solution later, it can accelerate the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide, which can also be fully utilized in other chemical reactions Yes, I hope you know it well.
