tert-Butyl hydroperoxide, TBHP

Cas No.: 75-91-2
MF: C4H10O2
Properties & Applications & PackagesInquiry
TBHP is one of the most commonly used alkyl hydrogen organic peroxides. The product is generally a colorless or light yellow transparent non-volatile liquid, slightly soluble in water, and miscible with organic solvents.

Butyl hydroperoxide is mainly used as an initiator for free radical reactions or polymerization reactions in industry. The decomposition products of TBHP are acidic compared to most other initiators. The decomposition products of TBHP are tert-butyl alcohol (TBA) and a small amount of acetone. The equipment is non-corrosive, so the requirements for the device are not high. The decomposition activation energy of the O-O bond in tert-butyl hydroperoxide is low and can be used as an improver to increase the cetane number of diesel fuel.

Tert-butyl hydroperoxide is a very important organic synthesis intermediate. It is a cross-linking agent mainly used in unsaturated polyester cross-linking under medium and high temperature conditions. Under the action of a metal catalyst, TBHP can also serve as an oxygen donor to selectively oxidize unsaturated hydrocarbons such as acetals, allyl alcohol compounds, and unsaturated hydrocarbons.

TBHP can be used as a catalyst for polymerization reactions; it can be used as an introduction agent for peroxide groups in substituent reactions; it is a primary organic oxidant that is easily explosive at high temperatures; it can also be used as a desiccant and polymerization agent for unsaturated melamine resin coatings. Initiator, organic synthesis intermediate.

TBHP is also commonly used in the dyeing and printing of cotton, viscose, silk, nylon and other fibers and fabrics. It is used for dyeing polyester/viscose blended fabrics. It can be used alone or for stitching. After dyeing viscose fabrics, TBHP can be used to dye viscose fabrics. After treatment with fixing agent M, the color will fade slightly. After treatment with fixing agent Y, the color will become slightly bluer. After treatment with urea-formaldehyde resin, the color will become bluer.
