Sorry this is over, but just wondering is the reaction of KMnO4 and H2O2
This: 2MnO4–(aq) + 3H2O2(aq) → 2MnO2(s) + 2H2O(l) + 3O2(g) + 2OH–(aq)
Or this: 2MnO4- + 5H2O2 + 6H+ → 2Mn2+ + 5O2 + 8H2O
It is acidic condition, so it should be (2) right? However, some (reputable) sources also claim it to be (1). So which is the correct one? When do you use the 1st eqn then? Thanks!
