Abstract

Kinetic data have been obtained for the reaction between chlorine and oleic acid in carbon tetrachloride solution by measuring the chlorine depletion and hydrogen chloride production as a function of residence time in a rod-like flow system. The data are well correlated by a kinetic model incorporating parallel, second-order addition and substitution reactions. Measured reaction rates are an order of magnitude less than those reported in a previous investigation which neglected substitution reactions.
