Kinetics of oxidation of 3-methyl cyclohexanone by periodate catalysed by Ru(III) in alkaline mediumAuthor(s): Sameer V.Renukdas, Satish Patil, Naseema T.Patel
Under identical conditions, the 3-methyl cyclohexanone was oxidized by periodate in the presence of Ru(III). The order of the reactionwith respect to ïRu(III)ï, ïketoneï and ïperiodateï are unity, fractional and zero. The effect of temperature was studied and kinetic parameters were evaluated. The probable mechanismand rate law applied.
