Kiely and team produce hydrogen peroxide on demand

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a versatile household product. In dilute form, it disinfects wounds, bleaches hair, whitens teeth, removes fabric stains, cleans contact lenses, and kills mold. In high concentrations, it can be decomposed through catalysis into oxygen and steam and used as a propellant or explosive. H2O2 is typically made in a …
