Kinetical studies and products analyses of the thermal decomposition of t-butyl heptafluoroperoxybutyrate (TBH) in benzene, octane, nitrobenzene, pyridine, and methoxybenzene have been carried out. In benzene and octane, the decomposition appears to be entirely a radical process. In nitrobenzene and pyridine, the reactions are found to give ionic decomposition products exclusively. On the other hand, the decomposition of TBH in methoxybenzene is characteristic of mixed ionic and radical cleavages.
