The reaction between formaldehyde and hydrogen peroxide. IR- spectra in xenon matrixes and calculations of intermediates and transition states


Products of reaction between formaldehyde and hydrogen peroxide were investigated in low temperature matrixes of xenon and in gas phase by the method of IR spectroscopy. Calculations of intermediates and stable productes by D.F.T were carried out. Saddle pointes for elemental processes were also calculated. It is shown that the reaction between formaldehyde and hydrogen peroxide corresponded as 1:1, 1:2, 2:1 forms one intermediate H2C(OH)OOH. It decomposes using a few channels close activation energy.
