General Description
Hydroperoxide formed by the oxidation of tetralin, a DuPont product, used as a turpentine replacement. The technical grade hydroperoxide is a liquid and will have a residual odor of benzene/menthol.

Hazards

The Hazard fields include special hazard alerts, air and water reactions, fire hazards, health hazards, a reactivity profile, and details about reactive groups assignments and potentially incompatible absorbents. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
Reactivity Alerts
Air & Water Reactions
No rapid reaction with air. No rapid reaction with water.
Fire Hazard
No information available.
Health Hazard
No information available.
Reactivity Profile
Most alkyl monohydroperoxides are liquid. The explosivity of the lower members (e.g., methyl hydroperoxide, or possibly due to traces of the dialkyl peroxides) decrease with increasing chain length and branching [Bretherick 2nd ed. 1979 p. 10]. Tetralin hydroperoxide explodes on superheating the liquid [Hock et al. Ber. 1933. pp. 66, 61]. Its interaction with strong reducing agents, like lithium tetrahydroaluminate, is vigorously exothermic.
Belongs to the Following Reactive Group(s)
