Pure Hydrogen Peroxide, a blue liquid with the chemical formula H2O2, was first recognized in 1818 by the French scientist Louis Jacques Thenard. This chemical was produced from the reaction of Barium Peroxide with nitric acid for the first time.
Hydrogen Peroxide is the only antibacterial agent that consists of only water and oxygen and is the most common mineral Peroxide. Hydrogen Peroxide is considered the safest and most effective natural disinfectant in the world. The most important method of its production is the catalytic process of anthraquinone with the help of hydrogen and oxygen.

Safety and Packing
Hydrogen peroxide is unstable and decomposes slowly in the presence of a base or catalyst. Oxygenated water decomposes due to heat and before reaching the boiling point and also turns into water and oxygen with the passage of time. Therefore, it should be stored in a cool and dark environment. This substance is available in 25 kg containers or 65 kg barrels.
