    • Abstract

       

      The kinetics of oxidation of phenylmethylcarbinol and substituted phenylmethylcarbinols by bromanine-T have been studied in aqueous acetic acid medium in the presence of sulphuric acid. The effects of added toluene-p-sulphonamide and sodium bromide have been investigated. The solvent effect and temperatures effect on these reactions have also been studied. The Hammett correlation gives a π value of-2.5. A suitable mechanism consistent with the experimental observations has been suggested.
