Kinetic study of Cu (II) catalysed oxidation of cysteine


Author(s): Swarnabala Jena

Abstract: The Kinetics and mechanism of Cu (II) catalysed oxidation of cysteine in aerobic condition was monitored spectro photometrically. All experimental sets were carried out under pseudo first order condition with [Cysteine] > [Cu2+]. Appearance of the reddish brown product was monitored by measuring the absorbance at 503nm as a function of time. Kinetic data were collected by changing the concentration of substrate and the catalyst, medium pH, ionic strength one at a time at constant values of other reaction parameter and the observed phenomena are discussed.
