The thermal decomposition reaction of Cyclic GlutaraldehydeDiperoxide (3,6-dibutanal-1,2,4,5-tetroxane) in solution of methanol in the temperature range of 130.0-166.0ºC and initial concentration of 1.69 x10-3mol/L, follows first-order kinetic laws. Under the experimental conditions, the activation parameters of the reaction are bigger than the obtained ones for other tetroxanos with different substituent's in the same solvent, which indicates us that the substituents stabilize the condition of transition decreasing the energetic barrier.
