NOVELTY – The hydrogen peroxide synthesis method involves passing electric current or electric potential in an aqueous electrolyte, between cathode and anode, to promote the reduction reaction of gaseous molecules of oxygen to hydrogen peroxide. Gaseous diffusion electrodes modified with organic redox catalysts are used as cathode, regardless of the material used as anode. The modified gaseous diffusion electrodes are also used in the oxidation reaction of water in the anode. USE – Method for synthesis of hydrogen peroxide in medium with different values of pH. DETAILED DESCRIPTION – INDEPENDENT CLAIMS are also included for the following: (1) gaseous diffusion electrodes modified with organic redox catalysts (2) an electrochemical or electrolytic reactor for synthesis of hydrogen peroxide, comprising the gaseous diffusion electrodes modified with organic redox catalysts.
