The kinetics of maleic acid hydroxylation by H2O2 in the presence of a homogeneous catalyst have been studied. A rate equation for the consumption of H2O2 has been obtained. The retardation of the reaction resulting from catalyst deactivation was observed. The fall in the activity of catalyst during the course of the reaction has been associated with the formation of a complex between the former and the reaction product.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
