Abstract : The radical induced decomposition of several t-hydroperoxides at 30C has been studied. In the self reaction of t-alkylperoxy radicals the ratio of the rates of alkoxy radical diffusion from the cage to combination in the cage is essentially independent of the size of the t-alkyl group. The 1,1-diphenylethoxy radical undergoes a 1,2-phenyl shift to yield the 1-phenyl-1-phenoxyethyl radical more rapidly that it undergoes beta-scission. (Author)
