Kinetic investigations on the formation of charge transfer complexes with three alicyclic n-donors (piperidine, piperazine and morpholine) in chloroform, using chloranil and bromanil as acceptors, have been carried out spectrophotometrically. A mechanism consiestent with the experimental results is proposed. Activation parameters evaluated are in correlation with the pKa values of the donors.

Кинетическое исследование образования кпз между тремя алициклическими н-донорами (пиперидин, пиперазин и морфолин) и хлоранилом или броманилом, как акцепторами, в хлороформе проводилось спектрофотометрическим путем. Предлагается механизм, согласующийся с экспериментальными результатами. Рассчитанные активационные параметры находятся в корреляции с величинами рК доноров.
