the peroxide anion being O2^2-
but in Ba2O2 how could this be when the Ba2 has a charge of +4 and the "peroxide" anion only -2.
So will the barium peroxide liberate hydrogen peroxide when reacted with water?
Please help - why do i always overcomplicate things!

dont worry - barium peroxide isnt Ba2O2 - its just BaO2. My book is wrong - i think. i found the second empirical formula from www.chemguide.co.uk - so it should be right. Let me know if this is true - just to make sure please.
