The initiating effect of the benzoyl peroxide—tetraalkylammonium iodide system in the low-temperature liquid-phase oxidation of cumene at 313 K is studied. The reaction proceeds by a nonbranching-chain radical mechanism. At the initial stage, the kinetics of the process is described by a first-order equation. The parameters of the kinetic equation are determined at various substrate concentrations and component proportions in the initiating system. Addition to the reaction mixture of benzoic acid, cumene hydroperoxide, and iodine in amounts that can accumulate during the reaction produces only a slight effect on the oxidation rate.
