Kinetics of Ion-Pair Effect of Aquation of Bromopentaammine Cobalt(III) Complex in Different Dicarboxylate Media
The rate of aquation of bromopentaammine cobalt(III) ion in the presence of different types of dicarboxylate solutions containing tert-butanol (40% V/V) have been measured spectrophotometrically at different temperatures (30-600°C) in the light of the effects of ion-pairing on reaction rates and mechanism. The thermodynamic and extrathermodynamic parameters of activation have been calculated and discussed in terms of solvent effect on the ion-pair aquation reaction. The free energy of activation ∆Gip* is more or less linearly varied among the studied dicarboxylate ion-pairing ligands indicating the presence of compensation effect between ∆Hip* and ∆Sip*. Comparing the kip values with respect of different buffers at 40% of ter-butanol is introduced.
