Kinetics and mechanism of liquid-phase catalytic ozonation of nitrotoluenes

  • A. G. Galstyan


The kinetics of catalytic oxidation of nitrotoluenes with ozone was studied. It was shown that the introduction of transition metal salts into the system makes it possible to prevent almost completely the ozonolysis of the aromatic ring and to direct the process towards methyl-group oxidation yielding benzoic acids. A mechanism of the process that explains the experimental findings was proposed.
