Electrochemical kinetic study of Rauwolfia serpentina xerophytic medicinal plants
Author(s): Alka Rani Bunkar
Abstract: The kinetic study of three varieties of Rauwolfia serpentina xerophytic medicinal plants have been carried out with electrode pair Ag-Zn in three different seasons by measuring their bio-electrode potential through redox process. The reaction velocity follow first-order kinetics but at higher span of time, becomes asymptotic to x-axis, showing zero-order of reaction. The complicated mechanism was observed due to the occurrence of oscillatory reactions in the system. The charge transfer enhance the activity of the system. Various thermodynamic properties were evaluated to explain the proposed mechanism in consistent with the derived rate law.
