Author(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 Ru(III), ketone and periodate are unity, fractional and zero. The effect of temperature was studied and kinetic parameters were evaluated. The probable mechanismand rate law applied.
