why OOH bond angles in H2O2 is more in solid phases than gas phase

Expert Answer:

Intermolecular interactions of solids are greater than intermolecular interaction in gases, So the bond length of O-O bond is less in solid-state, it leads to more lone pair -lone pair repulsions and bond angle is more in the solid-state as compared to the gaseous state.
