Rate Accelerations in the Hydrolysis of Salicylic Phosphates Under Micellar Conditions - A Structure Reactivity Study

Author(s): K. C. Rajanna, U. Umesh Kumar and P. K. Saiprakash

Spontaneous hydrolysis of salicylic phosphate is too sluggish even at elev ated temperatures in aqueous buffer media. However, the reaction is drama tically accelerated under micellar conditions even at room temperature. This procedure worked efficiently in SDS (sodium dodecyl sulfate) and TX (Triton-X- 100) media even at room temperature. Menger-Portn oy’s enzymatic model and Piszkiewicz co-operativity model were used to explain the mechanism of hydrolysis under micellar conditions.
