Is there? if there is , it is a phsycial law, and AFAIK it is

It's the same as the question of wave-function collapse. QM without
collapse is time-reversible and so conserves information. With
collapse it doesn't. But even without collapse information may become
unavailable to us due to statistical diffusion into the environment
or crossing and event horizon.


Let us take a closed vessel with oxygen and hydrogen at room temperature. Then we open a platinum catalyst in the vessel and the reaction starts. Will then the information in the vessel be conserved?


No, because the vessel can't be isolated at the microscopic level.
