Zirconium(IV) catalyzes perborate oxidation of iodide ion. In acidic solution the oxidation is zero order with respect to perborate, first order with respect to Zr(IV), independent of [H
+] and exhibits Michaelis-Menten dependence on [I −]. Mechanistic pathway of the catalysis is discussed and a rate equation is derived. Keywords Perborate iodide zirconium(IV) catalysis oxidation References
