Zirconium(IV) catalysis in perborate oxidation of iodide
- 44 Downloads
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.
