A comprehensive kinetic study on interaction of Ni(II) with γ-aminobenzoic acid
The comprehensive kinetic study on interaction of Ni(II) with γ-aminobenzoic acid has been investigated at 25, 30, 35 and 40± 0.05 °C in the pH range 3.04-4.15, using Aminco Morrow Stopped Flow Spectrophotometer. The ionic strength was maintained at 0.1 M KNO3. The deprotonated form of γ-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.
