Mechanism of Hg(II) Oxidation of D-Galactose in Alkaline Medium


D-Galactose, Nessler's Reagent The present paper deals with the kinetics of oxidation of D-galactose by Nessler's reagent in alkaline medium. The reaction is zero order with respect to Hg(II) and first order with respect to reducing sugar. The direct proportionality of the reaction rate at low hydroxide ion concentrations shows retarding trend at higher… (More)
