Anti-dumping duty likely on hydrogen peroxide

  1. 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
  2. The move is aimed at guarding domestic players from cheap imports of ‘hydrogen peroxide’ from Bangladesh, Taiwan, Korea, Indonesia, Pakistan and Thailand
  3. National Peroxide Ltd. and Hindustan Organic Chemicals Ltd. had jointly filed for the probe

Hydrogen peroxide

  1. It is a chemical compound with the formula H2O2
  2. In its pure form, it is a colourless liquid, slightly more viscous than water
  3. It is the simplest peroxide (a compound with an oxygen–oxygen single bond)
  4. It is used as an oxidizer, bleaching agent and disinfectant
  5. Concentrated hydrogen peroxide, or “high-test peroxide”, is a reactive oxygen species and has been used as a propellant in rocketry
  6. Its chemistry is dominated by the nature of its unstable peroxide bond
  7. Hydrogen peroxide is unstable and slowly decomposes in the presence of base or a catalyst
  8. Because of its instability, hydrogen peroxide is typically stored with a stabilizer in a weakly acidic solution
  9. Hydrogen peroxide is found in biological systems including the human body
  10. Enzymes that use or decompose hydrogen peroxide are classified as peroxidases
