Kinetics, Reactivity, Initial–Transition State Analysis and Thermodynamic Parameters of Base-Catalyzed Hydrolysis of Coumalic Acid in Solvents of Different Polarities
Base-catalyzed hydrolysis of coumalic acid (COU) in aqueous-methanol and aqueous-acetone mixtures has been studied kinetically at temperature range from 283 to 313 K. Moreover, the change in the activation energy barrier of COU from water to water–methanol and water–acetone mixtures is estimated from the kinetic data. Solvent effects on reactivity trends have been analyzed into initial and transition state components. ... Read more
