    • Abstract

       

      Kinetics of cleavage of phenylphenyl acetates (PPA) and several para-substituted PPAs in basic aqueous sodium carbonate-bicarbonate buffer containing 𝛽-cyclodextrin (CD) have been studied. The reaction exhibits saturation type kinetics and CD accelerates the rate of cleavage by the formation of 1G : 1H inclusion complex. The kinetic results indicate that aryloxy moiety of PPA is included in the hydrophobic cavity of CD. The overall rate constants for the cleavage of the [CD-ester] complex correlate with the Hammett 𝜎-constants and Hansch hydrophobicity parameters 𝜋. At higher concentrations of CD, there is an additional catalysis due to the formation of weak 1G : 2H complex.
