  1. 1.

    In the oxidation of methyl ethyl ketone, two hydroperoxides are formed: anα-ketohydroperoxide and a hydroperoxide of unknown structure.

  2. 2.

    Each of the hydroperoxides can be added to methyl ethyl ketone, forming hydroperoxides of the type R'C(OH)(RO2)R. The rate of decomposition of these hydroperoxides into radicals is lower than that of the free hydroperoxides.

  3. 3.

    When methyl ethyl ketone is diluted with benzene, the equilibrium concentration of such stable hydroperoxides is reduced, which leads to an increase in the rate of formation of radicals in the system.
