Applications
tert-Butyl hydroperoxide is used as an initiator for radical polymerization and in various oxidation process such as sharpless epoxidation. It is involved in osmium catalyzed vicinal hydroxylation of olefins under alkaline conditions. Furthermore, it is used in catalytic asymmetric oxidation of sulfides to sulfoxides using binaphthol as a chiral auxiliary and in the oxidation of dibenzothiophenes. It plays an important role for the introduction of peroxy groups in organic synthesis.

Solubility
Miscible with water and diethyl ether.

Notes
Light sensitive. Store in cool place. Incompatible with powdered metals, strong oxidizing agents, reducing agents, acids, alkalis and heavy metals.
