Thermal decomposition of peroxydecanoic acid has been investigated in various organic solvents. The reaction medium significantly affects the rate of peroxydecanoic acid thermal decomposition. It has been shown that primary homolytic decomposition of peroxy group is followed by induced radical chain decomposition reactions. The solvent nature influences both primary homolytic decomposition and secondary induced reactions. The correlation equations relating kinetic parameters of peroxydecanoic acid thermolysis and basic solvent properties have been derived.
