The kinetics of thermal decomposition of didecanoyl diperoxyadipate in different organic solvents have been studied. The primary homolytic dissociation of the peroxide bond (O–O) is accompanied by secondary induced chain decomposition processes. The reaction medium affects both the rate of primary homolytic decomposition and secondary decomposition processes. Correlation equations have been proposed for the rate constants of the reactions under study and physicochemical parameters of the solvents.
