The rate of initiation during the oxidation of ethylbenzene has been determined at various conversions both at 120 as well as 129°C.In order to complete the determination the reactivities of the inhibitors α - and β -naphthol, 2,6-di-tert.-butyl-phenol, N-phenyl-²-naphthylamine,'-diphenyl-para-phenylene-diamine toward oxygen and the products of the oxidation of ethylbenzene have been thoroughly studied and the most suitable ones were applied in the varying conversion ranges. By the use of the initiation rates measured with the help of the corresponding inhibitors the upper limits of the rate constants of processes yielding free radicals have been estimated.
