Applications
Cumene hydroperoxide is used in the preparation of polystyrene nanocapsules. It acts as a curing agent for polyester resins and as an oxidizer in organic chemical reactions. It serves as an initiator for radical polymerization especially for acrylate and methacrylate monomers. It also employed as an intermediate in the cumene process for developing phenol and acetone from benzene and propene. Further, it is used as an epoxidation reagent for allylic alcohols and fatty acid esters. In addition to this, it is also used to prepare methylstyrene, acetophenone and cumyl alcohol.

Solubility
Miscible with alcohol, acetone, ether, esters, hydrocarbons and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Slightly miscible with water.

Notes
Store in a cool place. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with powdered metals, organic materials, heavy metal salts, metal salts, combustible materials, acids, alkalis, reducing agents, rust, charcoal, amines, copper, lead, cobalt and cobalt oxides.
