Abstract

The reaction kinetics of the alcoholysis of substituted benzoyl chlorides was studied. The mechanism of the alcoholysis reaction, which is most generally accepted (1), shows that the overall reaction should be second-order and that the reaction should be first-order with respect to the acid chloride and first-order with respect to the alcohol. This rate study was carried out using a large excess of alcohol as the solvent, thus obtaining pseudo-first order rate constants, first-order with respect to the acid chloride only.
