HYDROGEN PEROXIDE REACTS WITH POTASSIUM IODIDE (2 of 2)<br />
A Decomposition Reaction<br />
H2O2 reacting with KI(aq). H2O2 has a slow reaction rate and does not undergo significant decomposition. When the catalyst is added, the reaction rate increases dramatically and oxygen bubbles can be seen forming.
