Abstract

This paper describes a study of the stability of hydrogen peroxide in the presence of different aluminosilicate materials, in connection with an investigation of carboxylic acid perhydrolysis. During the reaction, aluminosilicate materials such as H-β zeolites, mesoporous material H-MCM-41 and alumina initiate the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. The reason of the spontaneous decomposition of H2O2 is related to the partial dealumination of these zeolites. However, in the case of experiments carried out with H-ZSM-5 zeolite catalysts, a slight catalytic effect on the perhydrolysis and no spontaneous decomposition of hydrogen peroxide were noticed. The use of cation exchange resins as catalysts is more kinetically beneficial than H-ZSM-5 zeolite catalysts.
