Most organic chemists know m-Chloro-peroxybenzoic acid as a versatile oxidant for selective oxidations from the laboratory. However, this reagent is expensive and too difficult to handle to be used on an industrial scale. An alternative oxidizing agent with similar reactivity that is suitable for industrial purposes is peracetic acid. For various numbers of oxidations also hydrogen peroxide can be used. Evonik offers PERACLEAN® 40 and PERACLEAN® 35, high strength equilibrium peracetic acid, which are the products of choice for chemical synthesis.
High strength PERACLEAN® grades offer unique properties as an oxidant:
PERACLEAN® 35 and PERACLEAN® 40 can be used for a wide range of oxidation reactions such as:
