Abstract

The catalytic activities of γ- Al2O2 and La2O3 in the chemical composition of hydrogen peroxide has been studied via the gasometric assembly for oxygen evolution. The La2O3 was found to catalyze the decomposition reaction while γ- Al2O3 and α- Al2O3 was not effective as catalysts for the peroxide decomposition. The difference in the catalytic behaviors of La2O3 and Al2O3 (α and γ-phases) have been explained in terms of differences in the electronic structures of La3 and Al3.

Keywords: production, chemical composition, hydrogen peroxide, catalytic activities
