  1. 1.

    α-Hydroxyethyl peracetate (the adduct of peracetic acid with acetaldehyde) reacts extremely readily with cobalt diacetate, whereupon cobalt is converted to the trivalent state.

  2. 2.

    This reaction plays an important role in the catalytic oxidation of acetaldehyde.

  3. 3.

    The kinetics of the thermal decomposition ofα-hydroxyethyl peracetate to peracetic acid and acetaldehyde were studied. The rate constants and activation energy of the decomposition were determined.
