Kinetics and mechanism of OsO4 catalyzed oxidation of maleic, fumaric, cinnamic and acrylic acids by acid bromate

  • P. S. Radhakrishnamurti
  • J. K. Panda


The title reactions are zero order in bromate, first order in both substrate and catalyst. The order of reactivity is cinnamic acid>acrylic acid>fumaric acid>maleic acid. A plausible mechanism is discussed.
