Above 450°C barium reacts with oxygen to give the peroxide, but the peroxide is thermally unstable above 600°C.The peroxide is therefore prepared by reacting barium or barium oxide with oxygen between 450 and 600°C and then rapidly cooling and trapping the (kinetically stable, thermodynamically unstable) peroxide.
