  1. 1.

    Rate constants for the thermal breakdown of hydrogen peroxide have been determined at 1095–1253°K and pressures ranging from 1 to 2 kPa.

  2. 2.

    Mechanisms for the combustion of CH4 in H2O2 are reviewed and compared; the role of the H2O2 in this process is largely that of a source of hydroxyl radicals, the principal active center for this reaction.
