Oxidation kinetics of thiamine by µ- peroxo complex in aqueous medium
S Ignatius Arockiam and A Peter Pascal Regis
µ-peroxo-bis [aminebis (ethylenediamine) cobalt (III)] perchlorate dihydrate was prepared by solution route method. The prepared complex was characterized by FT-IR and electronic spectroscopy. Oxidation kinetics of thiamine hydrochloride by µ-peroxo complex has been investigated in an aqueous medium. The reaction rate measurements were carried out under pseudo first order conditions. The effect of complex and effect of hydrogen ion concentration shows first order kinetics in the oxidation reaction. Change in the concentration of sodium sulphate has no effect on the reaction rate during the oxidation. potentiometric method has been used for the Kinetic measurement. Thermodynamic and Activation parameters were calculated and a plausible mechanism has been proposed.
