Benzoyl Peroxide BPO Powder

The abbreviation for dibenzoyl peroxide is BPO, another name is which is Benzoyl Peroxide.a white crystalline powder. Melting point 103-106 ° C (decomposition) slightly soluble in water, slightly soluble in ethanol, soluble in ether, acetone, chloroform and benzene, easy to burn, can be exploded when heated by friction, burning occurs when sulfuric acid is added. The theoretical amount of active oxygen is 6.62%, decomposed at 72 ° C, (half-life 10 hours), and the activation energy is 125.6 KJ/mol.
