Kinetics of oxidative decolorization of alizarin yellow R (AYR) by chloramine-T (CAT) in hydrochloric acid (HCl) medium at 304 K has been investigated spectrophotometrically at λmax520 nm. The reaction showed first-order rate dependence on [CAT] and [AYR]o and fractional order dependence on [HCl]. Stoichiometry of the reaction was found to be 1:1 with respect to the substrate and oxidant respectively. The oxidation products were identified by spectral analysis. Variation of ionic strength had no effect on the rate. Addition of p-toluene sulphonamide (PTS) did not retard the rate of the reaction. Activation parameters have been computed. Probable mechanism and the relevant rate law have been deduced for the observed kinetic results.
