Autocatalytic kinetics are observed during the biphasic alkaline hydrolysis of C-4, C-6 and C-8 (butanoate, hexanoate and octanaoate) ethyl esters. Ethanol and alkanoate anions are the products of the reaction. A kinetic model including spontaneous dissolution of the organic phase into the aqueous phase, aqueous hydrolysis of the ester, formation of ester… CONTINUE READING
