Studies on Kinetics and Mechanism of the Oxidation of Cobalt(Iii) Bound And Unbound Alpha - Hydroxy Acids By Tetramethylammonium Chlorochromate
The kinetics of induced electron transfer reaction has been attempted presently with Tetra Methyl Ammonium Chloro Chromate (TMACC) and pentaammine cobalt (III) complexes of α-hydroxy acid in the presence of micelles. The Tetra Methyl Ammonium Chloro Chromate (TMACC) oxidizes cobalt (III) bound and unbound α-hydroxy acids. In Tetra Methyl Ammonium Chloro Chromate (TMACC) induced electron transfer in the complex, the intermediate radical formed dissociates in a nearly synchronous C-C bond cleavage and the rest of it proceeding with C-H fission yielding cobalt (III) complex. With increase in surfactant Sodium Lauryl Ethersulphate (SLES) concentration, an increase in the rate was observed.
