Research on interface reactions in radiation environment is focused on the reaction of the radiolysis products of water and the physical/chemical changes of solid materials in the heterogeneous system. In this paper, we review the research on the reactivity of H2O2, the typical radiolysis product of water, which may trigger one or two reactions among oxidative dissolution (corrosion), catalytic decomposition, and Haber-Weiss or Fenton-like reaction in aqueous phase. The kinetics, thermodynamics, reaction mechanism, and governing factors of the above-mentioned reactions will be discussed later in detail.

Key words: Radiation environment, Interface reactions, Oxidative dissolution, Catalytic decomposition, Haber-Weiss reactionCLC TL13
