    • Abstract


      The kinetics of oxidation of H2O2 by [NiIII(cyclam)]3+, [NiIIIL1], was studied in aqueous acidic media at 25°C and I = 0.5M (NaClO4). The [NiIIIL1] to [NiIIL1] reduction was found to be fast in the presence of Cu(II) ion than the oxidation of the cyclam ligand by ·OH. The rate constant showed an inverse acid dependence on H+ ion at the pH range 1-1.5. The presence of sulphate retards the reaction. Macrocylic ligand oxidation was followed spectrophotometrically by examining the oxidation of nickel(II) complexes of macrocyclic ligands such as 1,8-bis(2-hydroxyethyl)-1,3,6,8,10,13-hexaazacyclotetradecane (L2), 𝑚𝑠-5,7,7,12,14,14-hexamethyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane (L3), rac-Me6[14]-4,11-dieneN4 (L4) by reaction with hydrogen peroxide. The rate constant for the cross reaction is discussed in terms of Marcus relationship.
