Abstract : Experiments have been carried out to measure the gassing rates or pressure developed over several commercially available organic peroxides and the same peroxides with added container material to determine if peroxide-container interactions occurred which would require special shipping conditions. An isothermal (at temperature equal to maximum anticipated temperature during transport (130F)) constant-volume system equipped for measurement of pressure increase as a function of time was used for this investigation.
