    • Abstract


      The results on the kinetics of oxidation of HCHO and some alcohols,viz.,n-propanol, allyl alcohol, cyclohexanol and benzyl alcohol by ceric nitrate in nitric acid medium in the temperature range of 10–35° C. are presented. The active form of Ce4+ during the oxidation of the above organic substrates was assumed to be the neutral Ce(NO3)4. The mechanism of oxidation and thermodynamic parameters for the above compounds are also given.
