Hydrolysis:

The hydrolysis of cyclohexylidenebis[tert-butyl] peroxide in different aqueous buffer solutions (pH = 4, 7 and 9) at 5, 15 and 25 °C was investigated using HPLC-UV. Measurements revealed a fast hydrolysis of cyclohexylidenebis[tert-butyl] peroxide (half-live: 27 hours) at pH = 4 and 25 °C. The degradation products of the hydrolysis of cyclohexylidenebis[tert-butyl] peroxide are tert-butyl hydroperoxide and cyclohexanon.
