Description of key information

The hydrolysis of tert-butylperoxyneodecanoate (TBPND) in different aqueous buffer solutions (pH = 4, 7 and 9) at 15, 37 and 50 °C was investigated using HPLC-UV. Measurements revealed a fast hydrolysis of TBPND (half-live: 0.9 hours) at pH = 4 and 50 °C. 

Additional information

The hydrolysis of tert-butylperoxyneodecanoate (TBPND) in different aqueous buffer solutions (pH = 4, 7 and 9) at 15, 37 and 50 °C was investigated using HPLC-UV. Measurements revealed a fast hydrolysis of TBPND (half-live: 0.9 hours) at pH = 4 and 50 °C. The degradation products of the hydrolysis of tert-butylperoxyneodecanoate (TBPND) (7,7-dimethyloctanoic acid andtert-butanol) were identified qualitatively using HPLC-MS and GC-FID, respectively.
