where ko = 80 f 17 kg of H20 mol-' h-' for the oxidation of H2S and k, = 344 f 7 kg of H20 mol-' h-l for the oxidation of HS-. A t 25 "C our results give tIl2 = 50 f 16 h in water and 26 f 9 h in seawater (pH 8), which are in good agreement with the results of Chen and Morris and O'Brien and Birkner. The faster half-times (2-3 h) obtained by the electromotive force (emf) technique appear to be an artifact of the method.
