    • Abstract


      The oxidation rates of some substituted phenyl methyl sulphoxides with chloramine-T have been studied in alkaline and neutral media. OsO4 is used as catalyst in alkaline medium where the meta and para substituents show no effect on the reaction rate. This is explained on the basis of isokinetic relationship. In both the media, the orthosubstituents show steric effect.
