Expert Answer:

Nascent oxygen is monoatomic radical, which is far more reactive and unstablethan diatomic oxygen O2

It is designated as [O] . [O] is extremely unstable and tend to react with just about anything they come in contact with.

Nascent oxygen is formed by peroxide in presence of sunlight or light energy.

H2O2 → [O] + H2O
