Due to the extensively reduced dimensions for reactant flow, direct contacting of hydrogen and oxygen can be carried out safely in the microreactor. Our experiments clearly indicate that switching the reaction conditions to explosive H2/O2 ratios results in a major increase in both productivity and selectivity towards H2O2.
