The oxidation kinetics of substituted and unsubstituted 4-oxoacids (S) by N-chlorosaccharin (NCSA) have been studied in aqueous acetic acid media. The reaction follows first-order kinetics in each of the 4-oxoacids, NCSA and H+. The effect of changes in the electronic nature of the substrate reveals that positive charge develops in the transition state. Based on the kinetic results and product analysis, a suitable mechanism has been proposed for the reaction of NCSA with 4-oxoacids.
