The chain reactions HO* + H2O2 --> H2O + O2*- + H+ and O2*- + H+ + H2O2 --> O2 + HO* + H2O, commonly known as the Haber-Weiss cycle, were first mentioned by Haber and Willstätter in 1931. George showed in 1947 that the second reaction is insignificant in comparison to the fast dismutation of superoxide, and this finding appears to have been accepted by Weiss in 1949. In 1970, the Haber-Weiss reaction was revived by Beauchamp and Fridovich to explain the toxicity of superoxide. During the 1970s… CONTINUE READING
