Kinetics of the reaction of tetranitromethane with certain reducing agents
The kinetics of the reactions of tetranitromethane with reducing agents, which act as denitrating agents — potassium nitrite and potassium iodide in 70% ethanol — were studied.
The reactions studied proceed according to a total second order and are first order with respect to each of the components: with respect to tetranitromethane and with respect to the denitrating agent.
The instability constant of the complex I3− in 70% ethanol was found.
A method was proposed for quantitative determination of tetranitromethane.
