ABSTRACT The kinetics of oxidation of arsenic(III) by hexachloroiridate(IV) at lower acid concentrations and at constant ionic strength of 1.0 mol dm-3 have been investigated spectrophotometrically. A first-order reaction in [IrCl62-] and fractional order with respect to arsenic(III) have been observed. A kinetic evidence for the formation of an intermediate complex between the hydrolyzed arsenic(III) species and the oxidant was presented. The results showed that decreasing the [H+] is accompanied by an appreciable acceleration of the rate of oxidation. The activation parameters have been evaluated and a mechanism consistent with the kinetic results was suggested.

    ABSTRACT: The kinetics and mechanism of hexacholroiridate(IV) oxidation of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) in aqueous solutions at a constant ionic strength of 0.1 mol dm–3 has been investigated spectrophotometrically. The experimental results showed first-order dependence in [IrCl6]2– and fractional first-order kinetics with respect to CMC concentration. An inverse-fractional first-order in [H+] was observed. A kinetic evidence for the formation of 1:1 intermediate complex was revealed. The reaction kinetics seems to be of considerable complexity where one chloride ion from hexacholoiridate(IV) oxidant may act as a bridging ligand between the oxidant and the substrate into the formed intermediate complex. The ionic strength was found to have a negligible influence on the reaction rates. The kinetic parameters have been evaluated, and a tentative reaction mechanism consistent with the kinetic results is discussed.

    ABSTRACT: The kinetics of oxidation of tellurium(IV) by [IrCl6]2− in aqueous perchlorate solutions at a constant ionic strength of 0.1 mol dm−3 have been investigated spectrophotometrically. The results showed a first-order dependence in [IrCl6]2−, fractional-first-order kinetics with respect to tellurium(IV) concentration and second-order overall kinetics. The increase in the [H+] was found to be accompanied by a decrease in the rate constants, i.e., the oxidation reaction was acid-inhibited. Kinetic evidence for the formation of a 1:1 intermediate binuclear complex between the two reactants has been obtained. The ionization constant of tellurium(IV) has been evaluated and found to be 1.69 × 10−3 dm3 mol−1 at 25 °C. The kinetic parameters have been calculated and a tentative reaction mechanism consistent with the kinetic data is suggested.

    ABSTRACT: The kinetics of oxidation of L-Cysteine in aqueous HClO4 medium were studied using a one-equivalent oxidant, hexachloroiridate(IV). The reaction exhibits second-order dependence with respect to hexachloroiridate(IV) and first-order in cysteine. The rate decreases with increase in hydrogen ion concentration indicating that the zwitterionic form of cysteine is more reactive. Cysteic acid is identified as the product of oxidation. A suitable mechanism involving the formation of [IrCl6]2− – sulphur bonded intermediate is proposed. The activation parameters of the reaction are computed using the linear least squares method and the values of E a and ΔS # are found to be 27.97±1.82 kJ mol−1 and −51.30±6.0 J K−1mol−1, respectively.
