Abstract
This study details how peroxyketals, commercially available thermal initiators, and structurally related peroxides are activated in the presence of an acid catalyst to generate radicals at room temperature and below. This simple combination of two substrates was shown to efficiently initiate a variety of radical processes. This phenomenon is rationalized by the acid-catalyzed in situ formation of highly unstable alkenyl peroxides which readily decompose into initiating radical species.
