Formation of free radicals in acid-catalyzed decomposition of di-tert-butyl peroxide
Di-tert-butyl peroxide under the influence of protic and aprotic acids is converted to isobutylene and tert-butyl hydroperoxide. The formation of free radicals occurs as the result of the acid-catalyzed homolysis of the hydroperoxide.
