The H-bonded associates of α-phenylethyl hydroperoxide (HROOH) were investigated in CCl4, at various concentrations (0.788 × 10-3-960 × 10-3 M) and temperatures (22-75°C), by using IR spectroscopic methods. A very stable intramolecular OH••π bond was observed with a low enthalpy value. Above a concentration of 50 × 10-3 M cyclic dimers and trimers were found, the latter with the lowest thermal stability. The corresponding thermodynamic parameters have been calculated.
