Hi Everyone,

> Recently I've prepared pyridine-N-oxides by oxidation with hydrogen
peroxide

at

> peroxide. When I did this I was expecting large amounts of gas (CO or
CO2)
> to be produced, but nothing appeared to be happening at all. Does anyone
> know if treating solutions of hydrogen peroxide or peracids with charcoal
> actually causes a reaction, and if so what is happening.
