Salt effect on the micellar catalysis of the aquation of tris (3,4,7,8-tetramethyl-1,10-phenanthroline) iron(II) in H2O/Triton X-100 solvent system

The effect of Na2SO4 and PhCOONa on the aquation of [Fe(Me4phen)3]2+ has been investigated in pure Triton X-100 as solvent. The rate and mechanism of the aquation are explained in terms of changes in the mobility, activity and structure of H2O in the restricted environment of water pockets in the Triton X-100 solvent.
