Hydrogen Peroxide is a chemical compound with the formula H2O2. This substance is slightly blue and has a higher viscosity than water. The main applications of Hydrogen Peroxide include bleach and disinfectant and oxidizer.
Peroxides are compounds that have a single O-O bond and Hydrogen Peroxide is the simplest type of peroxides. The solution is unstable, so it is usually stored with a stabilizer in a weakly acidic solution.
Hydrogen Peroxide production
Hydrogen Peroxide is produced with different purity percentages, including 35%, 50% and 60%. Industrial methods for production of Hydrogen Peroxide are the oxidation method, the electrochemical method, the wet method, and the anthydroquinone oxidation method.
