Abstract:  The kinetic studies of benzoyl peroxide decomposition in naphthalene at temperatures ranging from 55 to 103°C have shown that this reaction is a chain process with an induced decomposition of first order. The chain propagation of this radical process is due to the interaction of solvent radical with peroxide while its termination is caused by a mutual deactivation of primary and secondary radicals. The temperature dependence of the rate constant of the overall decomposition reaction remains fluent even if the melting point of naphthalene is passed.
