Selective oxidation of thiourea with H(2)O(2) catalyzed by [Ru(III)(edta)(H(2)O)](-): kinetic and mechanistic studies.


Reported here is the first example of a ruthenium complex, [Ru(III)(edta)(H(2)O)](-) (edta(4-) = ethylenediaminetetraacetate), that catalyzes the oxidation of thiourea (TU) in the presence of H(2)O(2). The kinetics and mechanism of this reaction were investigated in detail by using rapid-scan spectrophotometry as a function of both the hydrogen peroxide and… (More)
