Organic peroxides are used in a range of industrial applications: The plastics and rubber industries are the heaviest users of organic peroxides. Organic peroxides and mixtures containing an organic peroxide are used as accelerators, activators, catalysts, cross-linking agents, curing agents, hardeners, initiators and promoters. Sodium Iodide, Room Temperature Test Method, for organic peroxides easy to reduce, and Sodium Iodide, 60°C Test Method, for organic peroxides that are moderately stable. Review the current Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for detailed information concerning toxicity, first-aid procedures, and safety precautions. Division – Organic peroxides Organic Peroxides are any organic compounds containing oxygen in a bivalent -O-O- structure and which may be considered derivatives of hydrogen peroxide, where one or more of the hydrogen atoms have been replaced by organic radicals. testing for organic peroxides Hazard to Others. Posts: Registered: Member Is Offline Mood: Oligomerised Itchy, you can kind of make up your own method for testing for peroxides. For example the following all give a good indication: 1) 1mL of sample to be tested added to 1mL of acetic acid and a few drops of 5% aqueous KI is.

Journal of Hazardous Materials, 5 (,) Elsevier Scientific Publishing Company, Amsterdam - Printed in The Netherlands HAZARD EVALUATION OF ORGANIC PEROXIDES V. KRISHNA MOHAN IDL Chemicals Ltd., Hyderabad (India) KARL R. BECKER and J. EDMUND HAY Pittsburgh Research Center, Bureau of Mines, U.S. Department of the Interior, Pittsburgh Cited by: 9. The main hazard related to organic peroxides are their fire and explosion hazards. Organic peroxides may also be toxic or corrosive. Depending on the material, route of exposure (inhalation, eye or skin contact, or swallowing) and dose or amount of exposure, they could harm the body. Corrosive organic peroxides can also attack and destroy metals. Some organic compounds may also act as oxidizing agents and create false positive tests. When dealing with peroxidizable materials that may be insoluble in the test solution, it may be necessary to use a co-solvent such as peroxide-free isopropanol to complete the test. Oxidizers/Organic Peroxides. Ammonium nitrate, fertilizer, swimming pool chemicals. Y* Y* N. a. ORM-D or mailable limited quantity only — Friction tops unacceptable. Hydrogen peroxide (less than 20% solution) Y** Y* N. b. No restrictions up to 8%. Solution strength up to 20% is acceptable, if ORM-D or mailable.

Download Citation | Decomposition kinetics and thermal hazard of organic peroxides | The thermal hazard of organic peroxides should be assessed to predict and avoid runaway decomposition. In this.   The composition of the samples used in micro-scale (DSC) and in macro-scale (ARC) was the same as in the industrial storage conditions. The results of the simulation of the explosion scenario supply the precise hazard information concerning the avoidance of thermal accidents during manufacturing, storage, and transportation of organic by: The GHS is an acronym for The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The GHS is a system for standardizing and harmonizing the classification and labeling of chemicals. It is a logical and comprehensive approach to: • Defining health, physical and environmental hazards of chemicals;.
