General-acid-catalyzed reactions of hypochlorous acid and acetyl hypochlorite with chlorite ion.


The rate of oxidation of ClO2- by HOCl is first order in each reactant and is general-acid catalyzed. In the initial steps of the proposed mechanism, a steady-state intermediate, HOClOClO-, forms (k1 = 1.6 M-1 s-1) and undergoes general-acid (HA)-catalyzed reactions (k2HA) to generate a metastable intermediate, ClOClO. Values of k2HA/k-1 are 1.6 x 10(4) M-1… (More)
