Experiment with Peroxisomes

I am currently underway preparing for an experiment dealing with the 
peroxisomes in chlamydomonas reinhardtii. I need to know what 
substances chlamydomonas break down in their peroxisomes. More 
specifically, I need a substance in my experiment in which I can put 
that substance into the water where the chlamydomonas are. This 
stress on the chlamydomonas would cause the enzymes in the 
peroxisomes to break down that substance using the available oxygen. 
In the end, my goal is to use this substance to control the amount of 
oxygen in the air by the way of the peroxisomes. I am hoping to get 
any ideas for a substance that fits this profile. Cheaper substances 
would be more convenient although price does not matter at this point.
