General description

Hydrogen peroxide solution is commonly used as a bleaching agent. It shows germicidal and sporicidal properties. H2O2 is a reactive oxygen species formed as a reaction product of various aerobic metabolic processes. Its ultra-trace quantification in the concentration range of 10-11mole/ml by a fluorometric method has been described.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for catalysis. Click here for more information.

Application

Greener oxidant used for bromination of 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds, amide bond formation from amines and aldehydes, halogenation of aromatic compounds and dethioacetalization.

Highly Selective Oxidative Monochlorination To Synthesize Organic Intermediates: 2-Chlorotoluene, 2-Chloroaniline, 2-Chlorophenol, and 2-Chloro-4-methylphenol
Hydrogen peroxide solution has also been used in the preparation of ′Piranha′, a sulfuric acid/hydrogen peroxide mixture for cleaning silicon wafers used in nanostructure-initiator mass spectrometry (NIMS) chips.
It can be used as an oxidant for:
  • Epoxidation of terminal olefins under halide-free conditions.
  • Oxidation of cyclohexene to adipic acid under organic solvent- and halide-free conditions.
Hydrogen peroxide solution has been used in an immunoblotting protocol.
