Tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide


Tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide (TBHP) is primarily used as a radical initiator in various chemical reactions, especially in polymerization processes. It serves as a source of free radicals, which initiate chain reactions in polymerization reactions, leading to the formation of polymers and copolymers. TBHP is widely employed in the production of plastics, coatings, adhesives, and other polymer-based products.


Tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide is used as an oxidation and sulfonation catalyst, and in bleaching and deodorizing.
