dissolved tetrachloroaurate ions (AuCl4 ). The authors suggested three possible electron donors for the reduction of AuCl4 , including the strong electric field at the microdroplet’s surface, the
Methods for Concentration of Hydrogen Peroxide To Obtain It in Anhydrous Form
Methods for concentrating hydrogen peroxide and obtaining this compound in anhydrous form, based on removal or binding of water from the surface of solution in an open vessel or in a closed volume
Spontaneous generation of hydrogen peroxide from aqueous microdroplets
It is shown that pure water microdroplets directly generate H2O2 without help from O2 either in air surrounding the droplet or dissolved in water, and suggests that hydroxyl radical (OH) recombination is the most likely source.
