Anti-dumping duty likely on hydrogen peroxide

  • India may impose anti-dumping duty of up to $118 per tonne on import of a chemical used by industries in applications such as corrosion control and paper bleaching from six countries
  • The move is aimed at guarding domestic players from cheap imports of ‘hydrogen peroxide’ from Bangladesh, Taiwan, Korea, Indonesia, Pakistan and Thailand
  • National Peroxide Ltd. and Hindustan Organic Chemicals Ltd. had jointly filed for the probe

Note4students:

  • Revise economy basics- an- ti-dumping duty etc. Know about Hydrogen peroxide in b2b. Back2basics: Hydrogen peroxide
  • It is a chemical compound with the formula H2O2In its pure form, it is a colourless liquid, slightly more viscous than water
  • It is the simplest peroxide (a compound with an oxygen– oxygen single bond)
  • It is used as an oxidizer, bleaching agent and disinfectant
  • Concentrated hydrogen peroxide, or “high-test peroxide”, is a reactive oxygen species and has been used as a propellant in rocketry
  • Its chemistry is dominated by the nature of its unstable peroxide bond
  • Hydrogen peroxide is unstable and slowly decomposes in the presence of base or a catalyst
  • Because of its instability, hydrogen peroxide is typically stored with a stabilizer in a weakly acidic solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide is found in biological systems including the human body
  • Enzymes that use or decompose hydrogen peroxide are classified as peroxidases
