Application Note: Anions in 70% Hydrogen Peroxide Applying Inline Matrix Elimination
10 April 2014

Hydrogen peroxide is used as cleaning, oxidizing and bleaching medium. Depending on its purity, it may contain inorganic anions as well as organic acid anions, such as oxalate, phthalate, and dipicolinic acid. Dipicolinic acid is a complexing agent that binds transition metal cations and is sometimes added to increase the stability of hydrogen peroxide.
