Typical oxidizing agents include persalts such as the alkali metal and ammonium persulfates, hydrogen peroxide and organic hydroperoxides such a tert-butylhydroperoxide. Reducing agents include water soluble thiosulfates and hydrosulfites and their salts, such as the sulfates of metals such as iron, nickel and copper.
