H2SO4 (aq) + 2 KClO3 (aq) + H2C2O4 (aq) 2 H2O (l) + 2 CO2 (g) + K2SO4 (aq) + 2 ClO2 (g)

This is an oxidation-reduction (redox) reaction:

2 CIII - 2 e- 2 CIV (oxidation)

2 ClV + 2 e- 2 ClIV (reduction)

H2C2O4 is a reducing agent, KClO3 is an oxidizing agent.

This is a gas evolution reaction, CO2 and ClO2 is the formed gas.
