ByS.O Idris, U.G Oloto and P. O Ukoha, J.F Iyun
The kinetics of the reduction of trioxoidate (V) ion by 1,4–benzenediol under pseudo-first order condition of an excess 1,4-benzenediol has been investigated in aqueous hydrochloric acid medium. The reaction conforms to a rate law:
The reaction rate was not affected by change in ionic strength and dielectric constant of the reaction medium. A mechanism consistent with the experimental findings has been proposed.
