# Is it possible to create a solution with superoxide?

I am not a chemist, and somehow I cannot find any material on this topic, so I decided to ask here.

I am looking to create a solution with a specified amount/concentration of superoxide ($\ce{O2^.-}$). Can you suggest some compounds that will enable me to "isolate" superoxide in a solution?

• OK, so what you're suggesting is to mix $KO_2$ and $C_{12}H_{24}O_6$ in $(CH_3)_2SO$, then the whole thing is added to an acqueous solution, which should have $O_2^{\bar{\cdot}}$. Correct? – A.I. Oct 31 '16 at 16:27
