Redox reactions in micellar systems Communication 2. Influence of salts on rate of reduction of methyl viologen


  1. 1.

    A study has been made of the reaction of methyl viologen by the ketyl radical in micellar ionic surfactants.

  2. 2.

    The reaction rate constant is subject to the equation of the second approximation of the Debye-Hückel theory when the process is carried out in micellar systems.
