Abstract

A simple, rapid, accurate, and practical headspace gas chromatographic method is proposed for the determination of hydrogen peroxide residues in bleaching effluent. of hydrogen peroxide with ceric sulfate, under acidic conditions, where hydrogen peroxide is converted to oxygen, which is then measured using headspace gas chromatography (HS-GC) coupled with a thermal conductivity detector (TCD). The results show that a complete conversion of hydrogen peroxide to oxygen can be achieved within 3 min at a temperature of 70 °C and a H2SO4 concentration of 0.2 M. Under optimized conditions, the method has an excellent measurement precision (relative standard deviation = 0.78%) and good recovery (100.2 ± 2.6%). does not require the use of organic reagents.
