Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

According to Goor et al. (1989), mixtures or solutions of hydrogen peroxide with organic compounds can exhibit explosive properties. Additionally, other products may be formed in the hydrogen peroxide-organic compound-water system that are more dangerous then the original mixture. In general, the mixing of hydrogen peroxide with organic compounds should be avoided or very carefully surveyed for security reasons.
