Peroxides and peroxide-forming compounds

  title={Peroxides and peroxide-forming compounds},
  author={Donald E. Clark},
Inorganic and organic peroxides, because of their exceptional reactivity and oxidative potential are widely used in research laboratories. This review is intended to serve as a guide to the hazards and safety issues associated with the laboratory use, handling, and storage of inorganic and organic peroxy-compounds and peroxide-forming compounds. The relatively weak oxygen-oxygen linkage (bond-dissociation energy of 20 to 50 kcal mole) is the characteristic structure of organic and inorganic… CONTINUE READING
