Did you know section[edit]

text suggests that peroxides are used in epoxy resins. in fact, peroxides are used as initiators in polyester resins, but not in epoxy resins, where component B usually contains multifunctional amines. Chris

Perhaps a fact from this article could be suggested at template talk:did you know. — Pekinensis 01:00, 24 July 2005 (UTC)

If you think it's a good idea, please do it. :) --Shaddack 02:21, 24 July 2005 (UTC)

I would be happy to, but I fear my poor knowledge of chemistry limits my ability to choose the most interesting fact, or phrase it appropriately out of context. — Pekinensis 02:57, 24 July 2005 (UTC)

Explosive polymerizations[edit]

Um, what? Exothermic, perhaps, but in all my chemistry, I've never heard of an explosive polymerization. I'll get back to this article when I have more time/wait out the lock on my account because I have too many passwords. (talk) 15:31, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Ethylene oxide will undergo explosive polymerization. Just google "ethylene oxide explosive polymerization".Silverchemist (talk) 16:45, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Ethylene oxide is an epoxide, not a peroxide. (talk) 18:02, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

The reference to use by paramilitaries should be changed to terrorists, should it not? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:02, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
