Catalytic activity and complexation-iv 2,2'-Bipyridyl as activator for the catalytic ultramicro determination of silver.

The activation of the catalytic persulphate oxidation of sulphanilic acid when the catalyst, silver(I), is suitably complexed, is discussed. 2,2'-Bipyridyl is proposed as activator as it accelerates the rate-determining step of the process-the oxidation of silver(I) to silver(II). The mechanism of activation is investigated and discussed in detail. On the… CONTINUE READING
