Kinetic Study on Induced Electron Transfer Reaction in Pentaamminecobalt(III) Complexes of α-Hydroxy Acids by Pyridinium Fluorochromate in Micellar Medium
Pyridinium fluorochromate (PFC) oxidation of pentaamminecobalt(III) complexes of α-hydroxy acids in micellar medium yielding nearly 100% of carbonyl compounds are ultimate products. The decrease in UV-visible absorbance at λ=502 nm for Co(III) complex corresponds to nearly 100% of the initial absorbance. The stoichiometry of unbound ligand and cobalt(III) complex is accounting for about 100% reduction at the cobalt(III) centre. The kinetic and stoichiometric results have been accounted by a suitable mechanism.
