Acid catalysis in radical hydroperoxide decomposition
Acid catalysis of radical hydroperoxide decomposition can occur in various types of polar solutions (acetic acid, methyl ethyl kentone, isopropanol).
There is a correlation between the acid strength and the activity in catalyzing radical breakdown.
Cumyl hydroperoxide decomposes with the formation of free radicals under the action of hydrochloric acid. The radical decomposition mechanism contributes to the extent of 0.18% of the overall decomposition.
