The rates of reaction for 1-chloro-, 1-bromo-, and l-iodo-2,4-dinitrobenzene and piperidine in 95% ethanol were determined for various concentrations and temperatures by a conductometric process. An RC-18 Conductivity Bridge with an oscilloscope detector was found to be very satisfactory in the study. The specific rate constants gave the halogen reaction series Cl > Br >> I at all temperatures and concentrations used. The conductometric method for determining reaction velocities has shown itself to be very effective since it allows continuous monitoring of the system thereby eliminating the necessity of a chemical analysis.
