Product Data and Technical Information

Corporate Statement

T-Hydro, tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide (TBHP) solution is a highly versatile product, containing 69-70% TBHP in water.

Benefits & Applications

Many industries, including polymers and specialty chemicals, use T-Hydro TBHP as an initiator and/or oxidant.
 
T-Hydro TBHP provides higher thermal stability than other commonly used oxidizing agents. It has a high self-accelerating decomposition temperature (190°F/88°C). Little to no decomposition occurs up to moderate temperatures (~100°F/38°C).
 
T-Hydro TBHP provides versatility and convenience in many applications because of the solvent's compatibility. TBHP's solubility in water is about 15 wt.%. TBHP is also miscible with most organic solvents.
 
T-Hydro TBHP provides reactivity control with appropriate catalyst choice and often mild reaction conditions. Selectivity advantages include regioselectivity, stereoselectivity and chemoselectivity. When reacted, the by-product tertiary butyl alcohol is stable. Simple distillation easily reduces the alcohol to low residual levels.
