Simple, but beautifully versatile. Perhaps not a description many would choose for hydrogen peroxide, but an accurate one none the less, and this unique book explains the reasons behind the description. Beginning with an historical overview, and guidelines for the safe handling of peroxygens, Applications of Hydrogen Peroxide and Derivatives goes on to cover key activation mechanisms, organic functional group oxidations and the use of hydrogen peroxide with heterogeneous catalysts. The clean-up of environmental pollutants; chemical purification; and extraction of metals from their ores are also discussed in detail, using actual examples from industry. The versatility of this reagent may well prove to be a key to integrated pollution control in the future. This book should therefore be read by academics and industrialists at all levels, to encourage wider applications of the use of hydrogen peroxide in laboratories.The chemistry of hydrogen peroxide and Caroa#39;s acid can be used in many applications involving metals: metal extraction ... The first involves re-oxidation of an intermediate, or a#39;relaya#39; metal, which in turn acts as an oxidant in the recovery process; ... states when treated with hydrogen peroxide (e.g. vanadium, molybdenum, tungsten) and these are much more water soluble than the corresponding oxides.
