Fenton reaction

Fen·ton re·ac·tion

1. the use of H2O2 and ferrous salts (Fenton reagent) to oxidize α-hydroxy acids to α-keto acids or to convert 1,2-glycols to α-hydroxy aldehydes;
2. the formation of OH·, OH-, and Fe3+ from the nonenzymatic reaction of Fe2+ with H2O2; a reaction of importance in the oxidative stress in blood cells and various tissues.

A process called the Fenton reaction occurs when cysteine combines with iron, which then combines with hydrogen peroxide to make hydroxyl radicals, ultimately damaging the body.

But in Fenton-like system,Fe2+ is slowly generated through the reduction of Fe3+ by H2O2 (reaction of (b)) and Fenton reaction is initiated.
