4 NH4ClO4 (aq) 2 N2 (g) + 5 O2 (g) + 4 HCl (aq) + 6 H2O (l)

This is an oxidation-reduction (redox) reaction:

4 NV + 20 e- 4 N0 (reduction)

10 O-II - 20 e- 10 O0 (oxidation)

NH4ClO4 is an oxidizing agent, NH4ClO4 is a reducing agent.

This is a gas evolution reaction, N2 and O2 is the formed gas.
