By the idodide ion, actually.Oxygen gasis rapidly formed. You put a squirt of dish soap and a drop of food coloring into 50 mL of 30% hydrogen peroxide Then when you add 1 or 2 grams of potassium iodide the released oxygen gas is trapped in soap bubbles you get a huge amount of foamy suds!!!The reaction sequence is as followsH202 (aq) + I- (aq) > H20 (l) + OI- (aq)H202 (aq) + OI- (
