Synonyms hydrogen peroxide: di hydrogen di oxide, hydrogen di oxide, H2O2
Synonyms dicumyl peroxide : Bis(1-methyl-1-phenylethyl) peroxide, Bis(α,α-dimethylbenzyl) peroxide, [C6H5C(CH3)2]2O2
Hydrogen peroxide is the simplest peroxide available, doing a good bleaching job. Hydrogen peroxide is a gas by nature (rocket fuel), so it is mostly used as a solution in water of 35%, but we can also supply less or more up to 50%. Dicumylperoxide is the simplest cross linking peroxide available. It is also used in environmental processes to oxidize contaminations.
In water treatment, peroxides are used to:
– replace chlorine to get rid of bad odours (waste water)
– cleaning ground water or other natural drinking water sources
– reduce the amount of ozone in drinking water
– reduce the formation of hydrogen sulphide H2S, known for its rotten egg odour
Other peroxide applications:
– bleaching and desinfecting in detergents
– adding to the Biological Oxygen Demand (B.O.D) in fish farms and waste water plants
– neutralising air pollution where NOx are oxidized to harmless molecules
– initiation for polymer production
– crosslinking of polymers and vulcanisation of elastomers into thermoharders
R22: Harmful if swallowed.
R37/38: Irritating to respiratory system and skin.
R41: Risk of serious damage to eyes.
