    • Abstract


      The kinetics of the olefin-bromine reaction has been studied in acetic acid solution using three related aliphatic monobasic acids. The course of the reaction clearly indicates a chain mechanism. It is found that the reaction is of the first order with respect to the olefin and the influence of the catalyst hydrogen bromide is pronounced, the experimental evidence favouring a complex formation between olefin and catalyst.
