Kinetics and mechanism of the oxidation of oxalic acid by potassium yetrabromoaurate (III)

Chemistry in the news – Abstract The oxidation of oxalic acid by the potassium tetrabromoaurate(III) in 0.005≤ [H2C2O4]≤0.07 mol dm-3 is studied by UV spectrophotometry in the temperature range of 293.2 – 313.2 K. Under pseudo-first-order conditions ([H2C2O4]0 ≥10[Au(III)]0), it is first order in [Au(III)] and [H2C2O4]. Both H+and Br– retard the reaction. The reactive species for Au(III) is AuBr3(H2O). …

Cure Kinetics of Epoxy Resin/MP/Anhydride/Accelerant Flame Retardant Composite

Abstract Cure kinetics of epoxy resin E51/MP/methyltetrahydrophthalic anhydride (MeTHPA)/ 2-ethyl-4-methyl-imidazole (2,4-EMI) flame retardant composite were studied using the dynamical tortional vibration method. The influence of MP loadings on The cure showed has improved studied were well. The results showed that the rate of cure reactions depended distinctly on the cure temperature. At low MP loadings, the …
