1.Benzoyl peroxide is an excellent catalyst for free radical polymerization process,used in the production of polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride and methacrylates and for the cross-linking of unsaturated polyester resins.
2.Its catalytic activity will depend on several different factors including type of monomer,temperature and presence or absence of accelerators or inhibitors.
