The second order reaction rate constant for the reaction of salicyaldehyde with p-Chloro aniline have been reported in ethanol at temperature range 303 to 318 k. The rate of reaction is first order with respect to salicyaldehyde and p-chloro aniline. The rate of reaction increases with increases in temperature. The thermodynamic parameters are used to explain the nature of reaction. Suitable reaction mechanism has been suggested for the formation of the Schiff base. From the effect of temperature on the rate of reaction various thermodynamic parameter have been evaluated.
