- Short Communication: Kinetics and Mechanism of Oxidation of Diallylamine by Alkaline Hexacyanoferrate (III)
- Published at:An-Najah J. Res., Vol. II, No. 7, (1992)
The kinetics of oxidation of diallylamine by hexacyanoferrate (III) in alkaline aqueous ethanol at constant ionic strength has been studied. The rate of the reaction was dependent on the first power of the concentration of diallylamine, but was independent of hexacyanoferrate (III) concentration. The rate was enhanced by an increase in the pH value The effects of added hexacyanoferrate (II), ionic strength, types of anion and cation, and the solvent composition have also been investigated. The activation parameters were evaluated. A mechanism consistent with the kinetic results is proposed and discussed.
