Hydrogen Peroxide is H2O2, a rather unstable compound.

It decays (if that's the right word) into H2O and O2.

yep

http://www.howstuffworks.com/question115.htm

When the catalase comes in contact with hydrogen peroxide, it turns the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into water (H2O) and oxygen gas (O2).


H2O2 --> H2O + O2

I've read that fishermen add some Hydrogen Peroxide to their live wells to get extra oxygen in the water.

how do they catalyse the H2O2 then? It wont begin to catalyse until it comes into contact with Enzymes in the bloodstream.
