    How do you convert CH4 to H2O2?

    Answer: magic

    There is no way that methane will turn into hydrogen peroxide.  That's silly.  There is only carbon and hydrogen in methane, and only hydrogen and oxygen in hydrogen peroxide.

    Burning methane completely in oxygen will produce carbon dioxide and water vapor, H2O, but not H2O2.

    Burn it with oxygen .. the H atoms of the CH4 will form H2O

    There would likely have to be an interaction with air in between as well. It won't just magically transform from one to the other without another ingredient being mixed in.

    My first guess would be that you'd need to start with some O2 from the air.

    CH4 + 3 O2 -> CO2 + 2 H2O2

      Methane burns in oxygen to make carbon dioxide and water vapor, not hydrogen peroxide.
