The kinetics of acid hydrolysis of some aliphatic esters have been studied at four different temperatures in 60% dioxan. The effect of the halogen on the parameters of the Arrhenius equation have been discussed from the standpoint of the electronic theory of organic reactions.

The kinetics of acid hydrolysis of ethyl acetate, ethyl propionate and ethyl chloracetate in glycerol-water system has been studied. Both viscosity and dielectric constant influence the reaction and a close correlation of the parameters of the reaction velocity equation is noticed.
