Kinetics and mechanism of complexation of Co (II) with 2-aminobenzoic acid
The kinetics of the complexation of Co (II) with 2-aminobenzoic acid has been investigated at 25, 30, 35 and 40± 0.05 °C in the pH range 2.10-4.62 using Aminco Morrow Stopped Flow Spectrophotometer. The ionic strength was maintained at 0.1 M KNO3. The anionic form of 2-aminobenzoic acid is more reactive and the protonated form interacts only to a small extent. Kinetic results indicate that the ligand is not involved in the rate determining step which is, in fact, associated with the release of a water molecule from the shell of the metal ions prior to complexation with the ligand. Enthalpy, entropy of activation, energy of the molecule and heat of formation were also calculated. A mechanism consistent with the kinetic data has been suggested.
