ABSTRACT The kinetics and mechanism of p-Bisdimethylamino-phenothiazin-5-ium chloride by sulphate ion has been investigated in perchloric acid. The progress of the reactions was monitored by observing the decrease in absorbance of the oxidant at 26955 max of 663 nm UVVis Spectrumlab 752s spectrophotometer. The results showed a stoichiometry of 12 first-order dependence in both oxidant and reductant. The second order rate equation at constant temperature is therefore given as-dMBdt k2MBSO42- where k2 4.86 dm3 mol-1 min-1A positive primary salt effect was observed and an increase in the concentration of hydrogen ion as well dielectric constant increased the rate of reaction. Added ions did not show any effect on the rate of reaction. The result of spectroscopic and kinetic investigation did not indicate intermediate complex formation in the course of the reaction. A plausible mechanism for the reaction has been proposed in line with the outer-sphere reaction pathway.
