    • Abstract

       

      Oxidation of acetylacetone (AA) by bromamine-B (BAB) in HC1 medium (0.1 to 0.6 mol dm−3) at constant ionic strength has been investigated at 40°C. The rate is first order in [BAB]0 and fractional order each in [AA]0 and [H+]. The reaction is also catalysed by chloride ion. Michaelis-Menten type of kinetics is observed. Decrease in dielectric constant of medium increases the rate. A solvent isotope effect κ′H2O/κ′D2O = 0.96 has been noted. Activation parameters for the rate limiting step have been computed. The mechanism involves the enol form of the diketone.
