Abstract

In this article, we demonstrate that iron oxide nanoparticles are responsible for the "electrocatalytic" effect of carbon nanotubes toward the reduction of organic peroxides. Taking into account earlier findings that hydrogen peroxide is susceptible to the same effect, we suggest that the electrochemistry of the entire class of compounds containing the peroxide group is affected by the presence of impurities within CNTs.
