Paper Abstract

Basic Hydrogen Peroxide (BHP), the principle fuel for Chemical Oxygen-Iodine Lasers, was completely regenerated by the direct addition of potassium superoxide. The researchers successfully returned the reactive hydroperoxide ion, 02H, to its original molarity. This novel regeneration method is compared with a regeneration technique using potassium hydroxide and hydrogen peroxide. The initial generation of BHP using these standard mixing reagents is compared to generation using potassium superoxide with a protic mineral acid.
