It is proposed the study of the physicochemical properties and reactivities of peroxide and disulfide molecules (R1XXR2; X = O and S, R1/R2 = H, CH3, CH2CH3, iPr, tBu, F, Cl, Br, I, C O) CH3 or C(O)CF3). The non-commercial compounds will be synthesized and theoretical calculations will be carried out at ab initio levels and with applications of DFT functional and also spectroscopic studies of the synthesized molecules.
