Oxidation — Reduction Reactions of Ions with Molecules

  • E. T. Denisov


Polar organic compounds (alcohols, ketones, hydroxy acids, acids) are oxidized by variable-valence ions (Co3+, Ce4+, Mn3+, VO 2 + ) through a one-electron mechanism with the formation of free radicals. In water, water-alcohol, and acetic acid solutions, the oxidation normally includes two stages. First, the organic compound enters into the internal coordination sphere of the ion-oxidant by way of an equilibrium reaction. Then, in this complex, the oxidation-reduction reaction takes place. The scheme of such a reaction is represented in simplified form as follows:
$$RH + M{e^{n + 1}}\overset K \leftrightarrows HR...M{e^{n + 1}}\xrightarrow{{{k_1}}}R \cdot + M{e^{n + }} + {H^ +}$$
