In the first week of January 2022, the price of hydrogen peroxide began to rise, and the market began to pick up one by one. The average price of the chemical in the first week was 780 RMB/MT representing a 1.74% increase.  Beginning in the second week, the market remained stable, with the mainstream price at 816 RMB/MT. The demand in the terminal paper and printing industries was widespread, the price of hydrogen peroxide was stable. However, the amount of hydrogen peroxide purchased by the terminal paper and printing industries decreased after the middle of the month, and demand remained flat.

About Hydrogen Peroxide:

In appearance, pure hydrogen peroxide is a pale blue, clear liquid, which is slightly more viscous than water. Hydrogen peroxide is known to be the simplest peroxide. It is used as a bleaching agent, an oxidizer, and an antiseptic agent. Concentrated hydrogen peroxide, or high-test peroxide, works as a reactive oxygen species that is used as a propellant in rocketry.

Chemical Formula:

  • H2O2


  • Hydrogen dioxide
  • Hydroperoxide

Molecular Weight

  • 34.01 g/mol

Industrial Uses

  • Agricultural chemical (non-pesticidal)
  • Bleaching agents
  • Cleaner
  • Oxidizing/reducing agent
  • Plating and surface treating agent
  • Solvent (for cleaning and degreasing)

Production Process

  • Production of Hydrogen Peroxide from Anthraquinone

Anthraquinone is hydrogenated to the corresponding anthrahydroquinone using a palladium catalyst in this process. When the hydrogenated product is autooxidized, the hydrogen atoms transfer to oxygen, producing hydrogen peroxide and regenerating anthraquinone.
