hydrogen peroxide

Strong oxidizing agent, formula H2O2, that is formed in the atmosphere from the reaction between two hydroperoxyl radicals

Hydrogen peroxide is very soluble in water droplets, leading to a high rate of liquid-phase oxidation for soluble sulfur compounds, particularly sulfur dioxide.
