The kinetics and mechanism of oxidation of paracetamol(PCM) by thallium (III) in acid perchlorate medium has been studied.
The reaction exhibits first order with respect to the oxidant but complex dependence of the substrate.Rate is retarded by hydrogen ion concentration in a complex manner. A plausible reaction mechanism has been suggested to account for experimental observations.
