Di Tert-Butyl Peroxide (DTBP)
The light load combustion stability limit at an engine speed of 1000 rev/min was reduced from a fueling rate of 9 mg/cycle with neat gasoline to 6.2 mg/cycle with 15% DTBP addition.
DTBP is an irritant to noses, and eyes and skin. It is also flammable, so it should be handled with care.
DTBP is a liquid dialkyl peroxide. It is an efficient initiator for polymerization of olefins and acrylic resins, and a modification agent of PP degradation, insoluble in water, soluble in organic solvents such as toluene, acetone, styrene, etc. Freeing point lower than -30℃.
Di-tertiary Butyl Peroxide is an organic compound consisting of a peroxide group bonded to two tert-butyl groups. It is one of the most stable organic peroxides, due to the tert-butyl groups being bulky. It is a colorless liquid.
DTBP can in principle be used in engines where oxyge is limited, since the molecule supplies both the oxidizer and the fuel.
