Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is an important disinfectant and bleach and is currently manufactured from an indirect process involving sequential hydrogenation/oxidation of anthaquinones. However, a direct process in which H2 and O2 are reacted would be preferable. Unfortunately, catalysts for the direct synthesis of H2O2 are also effective for its subsequent decomposition, and this has limited their development. We show that acid pretreatment of a carbon support for gold-palladium alloy catalysts… Expand
Direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide in water at ambient temperature
TLDR
Reaction temperature, solvent composition and reaction time indicate that when using water as the solvent the H2O2 decomposition reaction is the predominant degradation pathway, which provides new challenges for catalyst design, which has previously focused on minimizing the subsequent hydrogenation reaction.

The direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide from H2 and O2 using Pd–Ni/TiO2 catalysts
TLDR
Catalytic activity was observed to be stable to prolonged use in multiple batch experiments or in a flow system, with selectivities towards H2O2 of 97% and 85%, respectively, showing that this Pd–Ni catalyst has the potential to produce H 2O2 selectively. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that the addition of tin to palladium catalysts coupled with an appropriate heat treatment cycle switches off the sequential hydrogenation and decomposition reactions, enabling selectivities of >95% toward H2O2. Expand
