Bicarbonate ion is an effective activator for hydrogen peroxide in the oxidation of sulfides. Kinetic and spectroscopic results support the formation of peroxymonocarbonate ion (HCO 4) as the oxidant in the catalytic reactions. The reaction of hydrogen peroxide and bicarbonate to form HCO 4 occurs rapidly at 25°C (t1/2 ≈ 300 s) near neutral pH in aqueous solution and alcohol/water mixtures, and an equilibrium analysis of the reaction by13C NMR leads to an estimate of the electrode potential for… CONTINUE READING
