1055; "pimple cream," (see fn 304a, p. 1062) [NOTE: this is not the chemical formula for benzoyl peroxide as some have suggested. (That formula is C14H10O4.)] And...as I was informed by a reader named Olympia McGurk, "...this is not benzoyl peroxide; its chemical name is propionyl peroxide (or more correctly but less commonly dipropionyl peroxide). It is a precursor used in the synthesis of some polymers but is most emphatically not pimple cream as DFW claims. I suspect it would burn your skin off." Although, Olympia continues, "I also realized that it could just be a printer's or editor's error: the formula would be correct for benzoyl peroxide if it were (C6H5CO)2O2 instead of (C2H5CO)2O2. The substitution of C2H5 for C6H5 (ethyl for benzyl) would be a natural error for someone who knew a little bit of chemistry but who wasn't thinking about aromatic rings."
