Answer to Question #6877 in Inorganic Chemistry for MARZIEH
The reaction produces oxygen by oxidizing the peroxide to O2:
H2O2 + NaOCl = O2 (g) + NaCl + H2O
At least a portion of the oxygen produced is in the excited singlet
state (ground state oxygen is a triplet); this phosphoresces as it
converts to the ground state, giving off a deep red glow.
