Temprature of Potassium suproxide

    Temperature of Potassium superoxide

    Does anyone know what are the temperatures of Potassium suproxide, potassium peroxide and potassium oxide on which they fall apart(oxigen goes away)?

    How can I make KO2 in some syntesis?

    Do you mean bond dissociation energies?

    I think that the reaction,

    K + O_{2} ---> KO_{2}

    does take place (at high temp.). Correct me if I am wrong...

    I ment in the other way:

    KO2 ----> K + O2

    On what temperature it happens?
