Ru(III) and Os(VIII) Catalysed Oxidation of 4-Methyl Cyclohexanone by Periodate in Aqueous Alkaline MediumAuthor(s): Sameer V. Renukdas and Naseema T. Patel
Under identical conditions, the 4-methyl cyclohexanone was oxidized by periodate in the presence of Ru(III). The order of the reaction with respect to [Ru(III)], [ketone] and [periodate] are unity, fractional and zero, respectively. The effect of temperature was studied and kinetic parameters were evaluated. The probable mechanism has been proposed and rate law applied.
