Sodium perborate

Chemical Formula: NaBO3



White powder.


Sodium perborate is used in laundry detergents and bleaches. It releases more hydrogen peroxide than borax when it reacts with water. Hydrogen peroxide acts as a bleach, and this action is aided by the alkaline solution also produced by the reaction.
