    • Abstract


      The alkaline hydrolysis of ethyl acetate in dioxane-water and acetonewater mixtures have been studied. The trend of the reaction rate shows a maximum in the region of 10% organic solvent except in the case of acetonewater mixtures at 30°C. A close parallelism is observed in the variations of both E and log10 PZ values in the two series of solvent mixtures. Also, the PZ values have a marked tendency to follow changes in energies of activation.
