Sorry for the mess...

I'm kinda new at this.

No problem your doing fine. Why not get an account or are you now Cupro Chlorous? Should Hygroscopic be a hazard or should it be listed in Properties? CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 01:51, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Cleaned up (to the best of my knowledge). The previous author appears to have confused the sodium perchlorate with sodium chlorate. 04:59, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Lithium perchlorate[edit]

LiClO4 cannot possibly be the compound with the highest weight percentage of oxygen; that would be hydrogen peroxide (or trioxidane if you allow unstable compounds)

It should be the perchlorate with the highest weight percentage of oxygen.

Lithium Perchlorate actually contains more available Oxgen than Liquid Oxygen itself (w/w). With a of 2.419 g/cm-3 containing (64/106.5) 60.6% Oxygen. Hydrogen Peroxide, however, only contains (16/34) 47.1% w/w available Oxgen. It has a of 1.45 (85% w/w conc.) Thus, LiClO4 contains I mol of Oxygen in (106.5/2)/2.419) 22 cm-3 of fused salt (cf.LQO 30cm-3 = 1 mol). H2O2 contains 1 mol of Oxygen in (34/1.45 x 2)=(46.9 /0.85) = 55.1 cm-3. However, at extremely high temperatures H20 can act as an oxiditant, even so, H2O2 (85%) would still only contain 1 mol of Oxygen in 27.5 cm-3. You are correct in saying that it does contain the most oygen in a compound with its molecular w/w Oxygen. It all can get a little pedantic, and H2O2 is a far more functional rocket oxidant (and fual) presently, for various reasons, but LiClO4, is a seriously powerful oxidant, whichever way you calculate.+++PROF MAD+++Profmad (talk) 23:37, 6 December 2009 (UTC)—Preceding unsigned comment added by Profmad (talkcontribs) 23:26, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Production: electrolysis[edit]

I understand that the "same reactants" can yield different results: ethanol + sulfuric acid = {ethylene, diethyl ether} depending on temperature. But the entries for sodium hypochlorite sodium chlorate and sodium perchlorate all pretty much say that they're created the same way. Can someone knowledgeable on this topic put in the differentiating conditions? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:13, 29 September 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk)
