Autoxidation Process: Hydrogen Peroxide


Hydrogen peroxide is manufactured almost exclusively by the autoxidation (AO) process. The process is based on a reduction of anthraquinone, followed by oxidation resulting in the formation of H2O2.

Vaisala K-PATENTS® Process Refractometer PR-43-G can be installed at different points in a H2O2 plant. The refractometer measures the concentration after peroxide extraction to ensure maximum efficiency.
