Summarized Research of Decomposition and Thermokinetics on General Organic Peroxides and Non-Organic Peroxides
Organic peroxides(OPs) are general and useful chemicals which are broadly applied as initiator, cross linking
agent, or catalyst in the chemical and petrochemical industries. Due to the extensive applications of OPs, decomposition and
thermokinetics of OPs are the priority in process safety. If OPs stayed in extremely outside environments such as high
temperature, high pressure, or potential existed thermal source, OPs may trigger a runaway reaction to cause severe disasters,
for example, fire, explosion, and toxic relaxation. As follows, the results of thermal analysis at conditions of non-isothermal
state, isothermal state, and adiabatic state for OPs will be demonstrated, which can be used to reference data for use as
limitation at the permitted operating conditions in the chemical and petrochemical industries. Besides of OPs, there are three
non- OPs which are analyzed with thermal analysis in this study to compare the decomposition reaction between OPs and
non-OPs for summarizing decomposition reactions and thermokinetics parameters of OPs and non-OPs.
