Abstract

The direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide from molecular H2 and O2 offers an attractive alternative to the current means of production of this powerful oxidant, on an industrial scale. Herein we investigate the role of nitric acid addition, during catalyst preparation as a means of improving catalytic performance, under reaction conditions that have previously been found to be optimal for H2O2 production. The addition of dilute nitric acid during catalyst preparation is found to lead to a significant improvement in H2O2 synthesis activity, through the modification of particle size and control of Pd oxidation state.
