tert-Butyl peroxy-2-ethylhexanoate Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

t-Butyl peroxy-2-ethylhexanoate is a colorless liquid. It has a half-life in benzene of 10.0 h at 162°F (72°C). It is used as a medium temperature initiator for the polymerization of vinyl monomers and the curing of styrene-unsaturated polyester resins. It is regarded as an intermediate fire hazard; however, it has low impact sensitivity .

General Description

This peroxide is particularly sensitive to temperature rises and contamination. Above a given "Control Temperature" they decompose violently. tert-Butyl peroxy-2-ethylhexanoate is generally stored or transported with inert solids to mitigate the explosion hazard.

Reactivity Profile

TERT-BUTYL PEROXY-2-ETHYL- HEXANOATE explodes with great violence when rapidly heated to a critical temperature; pure form is shock sensitive and detonable [Bretherick 1979 p. 602]. Decomposes violently or explosively at temperatures 0-10°C owing to self- accelerating exothermic decomposition; Several explosions were due to shock, heat or friction; amines and certain metals can cause accelerated decomposition [Bretherick 1979 p. 156].
