  • 45 Accesses

  • 6 Citations

Summary

The kinetics of reduction of copper(II) ion by sodium tetrahydroborate in buffered aqueous solution have been investigated. The rate of the reaction is first order in the concentrations of each of the reactants. The activation parameters were evaluated and a plausible mechanism for the reduction of copper(II) ion is proposed.
