Chlorate to perchlorate using hydrogen peroxide: possible?


Recommended Posts

Just that, can a solution of chlorate be converted to perchlorate using hydrogen peroxide?


ClO3- + H2O2 = H2O + ClO4-


Guess this is just a question of H2O2's strength as an oxidiser compared to chlorate? Or to perchlorate, because the product, perchlorate, is more stable than chlorate, would this drive the reaction to completion?


Thanks :)
