    Abstract: The oxidation kinetics of fluorene (Fl) and its halogenated derivatives, namely, 2,7-dichlorofluorene (Fl-Cl), 2,7-dibromofluorene (Fl-Br) and 2,7-diiodofluorene (Fl-I), using potassium permanganate in alkaline medium has been studied spectrophotometrically at a constant ionic strength of 0.1 mol dm-3 and at 25 °C. A first order kinetics has been o... Show More
