Abstract:

The effect of pressure up to 3 kbar on the rate of the acid-catalyzed hydration of propylene and isobutylene has been measured. The effect of temperature in the range 90-120 C on the rate of hydration of propylene at 100 bar was measured. The volumes and entropies of activation strongly indicate that a molecule of water is present in the transition states. There appears to be no strong evidence regarding the molecular structure of the transition states. Author
