Hydrogen Peroxide

Industry Overview:

Most of us can remember the scene from when we were young; After some sort of fall, off a bike or on rollerblades, it’s time to “clean up” the wound. Mom or dad reaches into the medicine cabinet and pulls out the brown bottle of hydrogen peroxide. It’s going to sting when it goes on, it’s going to fizz and bubble, but ultimately it’s going to promote healing. In fact, that is one of its natural roles – our immune system produces hydrogen peroxide in damaged cells to signal white blood cells to converge and initiate the healing process.

What many of us don’t realize is how many other uses this versatile chemical has. It is a natural bleach with little environmental impact, and can be used to whiten everything from paper to laundry to hair and teeth. It helps teens treat acne, and it can be used to disinfect surgical tools. It can even be used in rocket propulsion! Science and technology continue to find more uses for hydrogen peroxide, as markets focus increasingly on the desire for “green chemistry” and reduced impact on the environment.

Common Applications:

  • Catalese peroxidases
  • Analogues
  • Anthraquinone process – autoxidation, etc.
  • Catalysis – hydroxyl radicals, etc.
  • Uncatalyzed, catalyzed, hydroponics, etc.
  • Polymerization, epoxides, etc.
  • Atom utilization
  • Propylene oxide
  • High Test Peroxide (HTP)
  • Oxidation – organic, inorganic
