DIY peroxide

Published May 2, 2020

Hydrogen peroxide can be used for disinfecting N95 masks for reuse, but that means supplies are running low, especially because it has a short shelf life.

Now a multi-university team has created a device that could change things. It’s…

…a quick, simple and inexpensive method to generate hydrogen peroxide in house using just a small flask, air, an off-the-shelf electrolyte, a catalyst and electricity.

The goal is to allow hospitals (and, really, anyone) to make H2O2 on site, on demand, for cheap.
