    • Abstract


      The alkaline hydrolysis of ethyl acetate in water containing small additions of acetone have shown that the earlier expectations of abnormal trend in the rate of reaction were correct. The absence of mechanistic change is indicated by the continuity in the curve for correlation of the two Arrhenius parameters. Any explanation has to be in relation to the structure of the environment of the reacting species and the requirement of the properly hydrated reacting ion.
