Dibenzoyl peroxide initially cleaves at the oxygen-oxygen bond; other bond cleavages can and do occur either simultaneously with or sequencers to the oxygen-oxygen bond dissociation.
An alternative cure procedure was also studied, using dibenzoyl peroxide as curing initiator.
3-Amino acetophenone (E-Merck), boron trifluoride ([BF.sub.3]) (50% w in ether) (E-Merck), dibenzoyl peroxide (Fluka) and dimetoxyethane (Fluka) were obtained in an analytical grade and used as supplied.

To achieve the titration and determine the time of reaction leading to the total decomposition of peroxide groups onto ozonized PE, we used dibenzoyl peroxide since it possesses a similar half lifetime ([t.sub.1/2] = 28 min at 100[degrees]C) in comparison with those of peroxide species coming from ozonized PE (8) ([t.sub.1/2] = 5 mm at 100[degrees]C).
Dicumyl peroxide (DCP) 98% and dibenzoyl peroxide (DBP) 70% from Aldrich Chemical Company were used as purchased.
