KINETIC AND MECHANISTIC STUDY OF OXIDATION OF ESTER BY K2Cr2O7
Keywords:K2Cr2O7, Ethyl butyrate, Oxidation, Kinetics, Mechanism
In present investigation we are studied the kinetics and mechanism of oxidation of ester by potassium dichromate in acid medium. In the present
paper we reported the effect of oxidant K2Cr2O7 , effect of substrate (ester), effect of sulphuric acid and effect of temperature on oxidation of ester.
The reaction is first order with respect to oxidant and substrate, as temperature increases rate of the reaction also increases.
