Hydrogen peroxide conventionally has been predominantly used for bleaching and water treatment purposes, especially in the wood, pulp, and paper industry; however, with a rise in the use of hydrogen peroxide in vaporized form for decontamination, especially in the healthcare industry, the demand for hydrogen peroxide measurement devices has witnessed a notable surge in the recent years. Furthermore, the eco-friendly residues of hydrogen peroxide, water (H2O) and Oxygen (O2) have propelled its adoption in various applications in the healthcare sector, such as laboratories, intensive care units, and pharmacies. However, the excess presence of hydrogen peroxide vapors (HPV) at levels greater than 1 ppm, is hazardous to life and can result in headache, nausea, irritation, etc. Thus, to prevent the exposure of living things to excess presence of HPV, hydrogen peroxide measurement devices are used. These devices monitor the complete decontamination process and provide measurements of HPV content in the fumigated rooms. Alongside this, hydrogen peroxide measurement devices play a vital role in process and safety measurement. For instance, hydrogen peroxide measurement devices find applications in potable and waste water treatment plants. The stringency of government regulations, which emphasize the content of the concentration of industry effluents before disposal, is the key factor driving the adoption of hydrogen peroxide measurement devices in water treatment plants. Furthermore, the rise concerns about water pollution globally due to the high concentration of chemicals in industry effluents has fuelled the adoption of hydrogen peroxide measurement devices, which are used to measure the content of dissolved hydrogen peroxide.
