Oxidation of Polyethylene Glycol-200 by Potassium Periodate in Alkaline Medium: a Kinetic Study

Authors: K. V. S. Koteswara Rao1, R. Venkata Nadh2

Kinetics of PEG-200 oxidation by potassium periodatewas studied in alkaline medium. First-order dependence of reaction on periodate was observed. Rate of the reaction was found to be independent of substrate concentration. An inverse fractional order with respect to alkaliwas shown. Arrhenius parameters were calculated. Rate law was postulated taking into consideration of experimental results.
