Kinetic investigations of oxidation of benzoin by N-bromophthalimide (NBP) in aqueous acetic acid medium in the presence of mercuric(II) acetate as a scavenger have been carried out. The oxidation kinetics of benzoin by NBP shows a first order dependence on NBP and fractional order on benzoin. The variation of ionic strength, Hg(OAC)2, H+ and phthalimide (reaction product) has insignificant effect on reaction rate. Activation parameters for the reaction have been evaluated from the Arrhenius plot by studying the reaction at different temperatures.
