Kinetics of H2O2 decomposition on a Fe2O3-MoO3 (wt. ratio 2:3.8) catalyst was investigated at two concentrations of H2O2 (1.2 and 2.4 wt.%) and in the temperature range 25-45 °C. Also the effect of catalyst concentration was studied. An induction period was observed which duration depended on the temperature used.
