KINETICS AND MECHANISTIC STUDY OF ACETOPHENONES BY TL (III) PERCHLORATE IN PERCHLORIC ACID
Kinetic and mechanistic study of oxidation of 4‐Chloroacetophenone 4‐ Methyl acetophenone and 4‐methoxy acetophenone is carried out using Tl
(III) perchlorate in perchloric acid media. The effect of variation of substrate, oxidant and perchloric acid was studied under pseudo first order
reaction conditions. The order of reaction was found to be zero for oxidant, first order with respective hydrogen ion and acetophenones. A probable
mechanism has been suggested on the basis of experimental observations.
