Abstract:

Second order rate constants, KIBA have been determined for unsubstituted and 4-alkyl substituted o-iodosobenzoate catalyzed hydrolysis of the simulant p-nitrophenyl-diphenyl phosphate in microemulsions containing surfactants cetyltrimethyl-ammonium bromidechloride, or cetylpyridinium chloride cosurfactants 1-alkyl-2-pyrrolidinones, N,N-dialkylformamides, tetraalkylammonium chloridebromide oils hexadecane, toluene, 4-tert- butyltoluene, and perchloroethylene. Additional cosurfactants containing N-CO functionality, double-tailed surfactants, and aromatic N-alkyl oils have also been employed. Phase diagrams and maps have been constructed. The kinetics were optimized by varying component concentrations.
