Abstract The kinetics of the reaction between cyclopentanone and cyclohexanone with hexacyanoferrate(III) ion catalyzed by rhodium(III) chloride in alkaline medium has been investigated at four temperatures. The data show that the reaction follows first order kinetics with respect to hydroxide ion and cyclic ketone concentrations while the rate shows direct proportionality with respect to low concentrations of hexacyanoferrate(III) ion, which tends to become zeroth order at higher [oxidant… CONTINUE READING
