|Abstract:||Kinetics of Ru(III) chloride catalysed oxidation of chalcone and some substituted chalcones by acid bromate have been studied in acetic acid-sulphuric acid medium in the temperature range 303-318 K. The reaction is first order each in [chalcone] and [Ru(III)] and zero order each in [H +] and [BrO)]. The rate increases with increase in the percentage of acetic acid and the plot of log ko versus 1/D is linear with a positive slope indicating the positive ion-dipole nature of the reaction. The order of reactivities of various substituted chalcones with substituents in phenyl ring is: p-CH3 > m-CH3 > H > p-Cl > m-NO2 > p-NO2. A radical mechanism involving the chalcone and Ru(III) in the slow step followed by oxidation of Ru(II) by BrO to Ru(III) in the fast step is proposed.|
