Full Articles


The kinetics of oxidation of a series of alcohols (propan-2-ol, 2-methylpropan-1-ol, butan-1-ol, butan-2-ol, 3-methylpentan-1-ol, heptan-4-ol, decan-2-ol, cyclohexanol, borneol) by chlorine dioxide in organic solvents was studied using spectrophotometry. The reaction is described by the second-order rate equation w = k[ROH][ClO2]. The rate constants were measured in the range of 10–60 °C, and the activation parameters of the processes were calculated. The products were identified, and the yields were determined.
