The kinetics of the alkaline hydrolysis of vinyl esters of furan-2-carboxylic, trans-β-(2-furyl)acrylic, and trans-cinnamic acids and also the comparative electrochemical activities of these compounds and of vinyl esters of 5-bromofuran-2-carboxylic, 5-nitro-furan-2-carboxylic, and benzoic acids have been studied by a polarographic method. A symbatic increase in the rate of hydrolysis of the esters with a shift of the potential of the half-wave of reduction into the more negative region has been established. Both the polarity and the polarizability of the molecules have a fundamental influence on the properties of the esters.
