Gas evolution reaction


A gas evolution reaction is a chemical reaction in which one of the end products is a gas such as oxygen or carbon dioxide.[1][2] Gas evolution reactions may be carried out in a fume chamber when the gases produced are poisonous when inhaled or explosive.[3]


In this example, hydrogen gas in diatomic form is released. Dilute hydrocloric acid can also be used in place of dilute sulphuric acid.
