The problem with reacting H2 with O2 to remove the O2 is you will release a lot of heat and may cause an explosion. You also remove two moles of H2 for each mole of O2, therefore have to generate a lot more H2 to achieve the same H2 concentration. There are a lot of ways of seperating H2 in commercial quantities (PSA, mol sieves, cryogenics etc) but your application sounds like a lab scale project.
