Abstract : The formulation and equilibrium parameters of a number of peroxocomplexes of do transition metal ions have been determined; an empirical model is presented to correlate the various structures observed. The redox reactions of these complexes with a number of substrates have been studies, and the results are compared to the corresponding reactions of hydrogen peroxide. Enormous catalytic activation of peroxide is observed with group 6 metal ions. In some cases superoxocomplexes have been formed from precursor peroxocomplexes, and their redox chemistry is compared to that of protonated superoxide. The final report contains a statement of work, a summary of the most important results, a list of publications, and a list of all participating scientific personnel. Keywords: Hydrogen peroxide, Peroxo metal ion complexes, Superoxo metal ion complexes, Aqueous solution, Equilibrium studies, Formation constants, Raman spectroscopy, Catalysis.
