Significance and Use

3.1 Organic peroxides are widely used as chemical intermediates, catalysts, and initiators. These test methods provide procedures for assaying organic peroxides to determine if they are suitable for their intended use.


1.1 These test methods cover the assay of organic peroxides. Two procedures are given, depending upon the ease of reduction:

1.1.1 Sodium Iodide, Room Temperature Test Method, for organic peroxides easy to reduce, and

1.1.2 Sodium Iodide, 60°C Test Method, for organic peroxides that are moderately stable.

1.2 Review the current Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for detailed information concerning toxicity, first-aid procedures, and safety precautions.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
