Development of Catalyst for Reductive Activation of O2 Molecule


Using oxygen in the air as an oxidizing agent is very attractive. Oxygen is activated reductively and it shows the strong oxidizing power. We have succeeded to construct the reaction system using Hydrogen to the reduction of oxygen. The reaction is very clean because emissions is only water.
 
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is very important oxidant in the chemical industry.
We are challenging to develop the new molecular catalyst directly synthesizing H2O2 from H2 and O2 in the mild conditions.
