Oxygenated Water
« on: 17/09/2006 15:25:36 »
Hi why not oxygenated water instead of carbonated water. I wonder if it gives more oxygen to the system or it burn the system like Hydrogen peroxide ?

You can dissolve a fairly high amount of carbondioxide in water, but rather little oxygen.  
It would behave like dilute hydrogenperoixide since you have the reaction H2O2 -> H2O + 1/2 O2 in contact with almost anything.  
And if you ever had to rince your mouth with dilute hydrogen peroxide  you probably remember this does not give the sensation of freshness you get from soda water.
