Hydrogen Peroxide Detected In Space
Hydrogen peroxide has been detected in interstellar space for the first time, a finding that could be used to refine models of astrochemical processes involving the compound, which is believed to play a key role in the chemistry of oxygen and water (Astron. Astrophys., DOI: 10.1051/0004-6361/201117170). Astronomers have proposed that H2O2 may form in interstellar molecular clouds via gas-phase reactions of H2 with HO2 or through reactions of two . . .
