Cumene Hydroperoxide

Molecule Structure Image



Cumene hydroperoxide is an intermediate in the cumene process. It is a relatively stable organic peroxide. It is used as a polymerization inhibitor particularly in redox systems and to manufacture organic peroxides, primarily dicumylperoxide, which are used in the manufacture of plastic resins and as initiators in chemical reactions.
