Direct electrochemical production of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) through two-electron oxygen electrochemistry is an effective way to uti-lization of green energy, which has attracted widespread attention in recent years and has emerged as the most promising method to replace the traditional anthraquinone process. The practical ap-plication of these processes depends greatly on the low-cost and highly effective catalysts, which are also the determining factor for theH2O2 production efficiency. Herein, we review the advances in electrochemical H2O2 production through a two-electron Oxygen Reduction Reaction (ORR). We fo-cus on the relationship between the unique structure-, component-, and composition-dependent electrochemical performance, as well as the related catalytic mechanisms. Finally, the perspective on the development of the catalysts for two-electron ORR is provided.
