Kinetics of oxidation of aromatic ketones by peroxydisulphate catalysed by silver ions

  • P. L. Nayak
  • N. C. Khandual


The rates of peroxydisulphate oxidation of aromatic ketones have been found to be first order with respect to peroxydisulphate as well as of silver (I), but independent of the aromatic ketone. The effect of substituents on the rate of oxidation has been evaluated. The logk values have been plotted against the σ+ values, with ρ+=− 0.14. The reactivities of 1- and 2-acetyl naphthalene have been discussed. A mechanism of the oxidation of aromatic ketones based on reactive Ag+2 species has been suggested.
