Mechanistic aspects for the oxidation of brilliant green dye by chloramine-T in the presence of perchloric acid: a spectrophotometric kinetic approach

  • Ajaya Kumar Singh
  • Shakila Bano


The kinetics of a triarylmethane dye, brilliant green (BG), by sodium N-chloro-p-toluenesulfonamide or chloramine-T (CAT) was studied spectrophotometrically in HClO4 media at 303 K. Under identical experimental conditions, the rate law was −d [BG]/dt = k [BG] [H+]. Variations in ionic strength (μ) of the medium had no effect on the oxidation velocity. Addition of p-toluenesulfonamide, the reduction product of CAT and Cl, had no significant effect on the rate of reaction. The values of rate constants observed at five different temperatures (298, 303, 308, 313, and 318 K) were utilized to calculate the activation parameters. The observed results have been explained by a general mechanism and the related rate law has been obtained. The process demonstrated in this study is cost effective, which holds great promise in potential application for pollutant control.
