This invention relates to peroxonium salts and to method for their preparation. Materials which will produce O2 at relatively low temperatures are in demand. For example, such a material could be used to produce oxygen for use in manned space vehicles and the like simply by placing a quantity of the material in a heatable container and heating the material when oxygen production was desired. H2O2 is a very useful producer of molecular oxygen. For example, it is used to generate excited oxygen for use in chemical lasers. Also, it is used as a monopropellant in liquid rocket engines. However, it has a drawback in that is is difficult to handle. It readily undergoes autocatalytic decomposition. Accordingly, it would be convenient if this material could be stored in a stable salt form. Keywords Patents Oxygen generation.
