The thermal gross decomposition of dimethylacetamide hydroperoxide (ROOH) in dimethylacetamide (RH) as the medium proceeds in harmony with the equation: Wp=kind [ROOH]0 m/[RH]0 n, where m=1.5−2; n=2−0.5. Alkyl radicals with a chain length of 195−3 units are mainly responsible for the induced decomposition. We determined the ratio between the molecular and radical directions of the decomposition and kind in the range 80–132°.
