Hydrogen Peroxide
H2O2
Strength (% of hydrogen peroxide) of 27.5%; 35%; 50%; 70%
The major application of Hydrogen Peroxide is as a bleaching agent in the pulp and paper industry. Other applications of Hydrogen Peroxide include: Bleaching agent of natural and synthetic fibers in textile industry; detoxification of cyanide tailings in mining; wastewater treatment; plasticizer; flue gas treatment; oxidizing agent in chemical synthesis; flame retardant; catechol; herbicide production; intermediate for paints; antimicrobial in pharmaceuticals; resin solubilizer; aseptic food packaging. Among the applications presented, the use of Hydrogen Peroxide as raw material in the production of propylene oxide has significantly increased in the last years.

Hydrogen Peroxide (a.k.a. H2O2, Oxygenated Water) is the simplest peroxide (molecules comprising a covalent bond between two oxygen atoms covalently bonded to one another) in existence. It is a nearly colorless (pale blue) liquid, weakly acidic and miscible with water in all proportions. It can be found in nature, in living organisms and in the atmosphere, however, oxygenated water is unstable and slowly decomposes in the presence of light. Hydrogen peroxide began being commercially produced in the 1880s and currently it is mainly used as a bleaching and oxidizing agent in a wide variety of industries.
