Decompositions of peroxybenzoic acid and of benzoyl peroxide were carried out in binary mixtures of carbon tetrachloride with cyclo-hexane, toluene or diethyl ether. The results of the product study strongly support the radical mechanism established previously and show that the oxygen to oxygen bond of peroxybenzoic acid is attacked by radicals more readily than that of benzoyl peroxide, but even peroxybenzoic acid is hardly attacked by the trichloromethyl radical.
