Abstract

Bunnett, Miles, and Nahabedian (3) studied the kinetics of the alkali cleavage of 2, 6-dichlorobenzaldehyde at base concentrations ranging from .211M. to 1.86M. They found that the simplest mechanism which gives an adequate account of the kinetics is represented by equations (I) and (II). For the step presented by equation (II), kc is the concentration independent second-order rate constant. The purpose of this project was to expand the region studied to the highest feasible base concentration.
