  1. 1.

    A study was made of the thermal decomposition of lithium peroxide under static conditions in the temperature range 270–320‡.

  2. 2.

    The formation of solid Li2O2-Li2O solution is observed up to a degree of Li2O2 conversion of approximately 50%. The apparent activation energy for the decomposition of Li2O2 is 50 kcal/mole
