    • Abstract


      Decomposition of murexide in solutions of low pH (2–6) has been investigated spectrophotometrically. At pH<6, the characteristic absorption of of murexide at λ=530 mμ decreased irreversibly with time, following first order law; the corresponding rate constantk1 had a value of 7·98×10−6 min.−1 (25° C.) for an initial concentration of 0·125 mM of murexide at pH=2·2.
