Abstract

"The rates of oxidation of four chelating agents, NTA, EDTA CDTA, and DTPA with Ce(IV), in sulfuric acid media, were determined spectrophotometrically by a stopped-flow technique. The reductive ability is in the order CDTA>EDTA>DTPA>NTA. The influence of varying the acidity of the medium was studied, and in each case a maximum in the rate constant [H +] plot was observed. A possible interpretation of the reactivities and the influence of acidity is advanced"--Summary, page 1.
