h2o2 is reduced to h2o?
energy is released?
and what about reverse?
adding oxygen to h2o is oxidizing it and making h2o2.
maybe that cycle can be used for energy yield? or not practical??

It takes more energy to bring it back to that point of use as a fuel than the maximum you can receive from burning, understand?
People mistake hydrogen as something to be 'extracted' from water, the way one would extract oil from the ground, but they do not realize that energy is being input to dissociate water. Water is stable, it does not want to come apart. You must force it apart.
If anyone would like a push in the right direction, I can help you with that.

Conspiritron9000, how could H2O2 be made with O3 / high voltage. H2O2 in very low concentrations happens naturally, so how can we make it without a big chemical rube goldberg setup?
Most people have no idea how hazardous DiHydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is!
Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol.
For more detailed information, including precautions, disposal procedures and storage requirements, refer to one of the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) available for DHMO:
* Kemp Compliance & Safety MSDS for DHMO
* Chem-Safe, Inc. MSDS for Dihydrogen Monoxide
* Applied Petrochemical Research MSDS for Hydric Acid
* Original DHMO.org Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for Dihydrogen Monoxide (html)
Should I be concerned about Dihydrogen Monoxide?
Yes, you should be concerned about DHMO! Although the U.S. Government and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) do not classify Dihydrogen Monoxide as a toxic or carcinogenic substance (as it does with better known chemicals such as hydrochloric acid and benzene), DHMO is a constituent of many known toxic substances, diseases and disease-causing agents, environmental hazards and can even be lethal to humans in quantities as small as a thimbleful.
Research conducted by award-winning U.S. scientist Nathan Zohner concluded that roughly 86 percent of the population supports a ban on dihydrogen monoxide.
What are some of the dangers associated with DHMO?
Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major contributor to millions upon millions of dollars in damage to property and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:
* Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
* Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
* Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
* DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
* Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
