Catalysis to Eliminate Needless Chlorine in Industry - Direct Synthesis of H2O2 and “Green” Epoxidations - David W. Flaherty

H¬2O2 is an environmentally-benign and selective oxidant useful for epoxidations and bleaching, yet, its use is limited because the anthraquinone oxidation process is viable only at very large…
