Hydrogen peroxide is an economical but powerful and environmentally benign oxidizing agent that has found many uses in the chemical industry for the manufacture of organic compounds. Due to its low molecular weight, hydrogen peroxide is a more efficient oxidizing agent on a weight per weight basis than potassium dichromate or permanganate. It is a stable and safe chemical when handled correctly and offers the advantage of being soluble in water, in many organic solvents, or in the substrate itself. Last but not least, hydrogen peroxide has an environmentally benign profile since it decomposes to just water and oxygen.
The various applications where hydrogen peroxide is used as the oxidizing agent of choice include the following examples in chemical synthesis:
Depending on the initial quality requirements for chemical synthesis applications, Evonik offers both standard as well as high purity hydrogen peroxide grades. Please check with your regional contact about the right grade for your application. contact
