(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Medium of ChemistryPeroxides are compounds that have oxygen in their structure and release oxygen when they react.

They can be explosive when heated, corrosive, liquid at room temperature, and react with water releasing oxygen. However, one characteristic that does not apply to peroxides is that they are good conductors of electricity. This is because peroxides, like many other covalent compounds, do not have free ions to conduct electricity.
