    Solvent Effect on the Enthalpy and Entropy of Activation for the Hydrolysis of Ethyl Cinnamate in Mixed Solvent System
    Author(s): Singh AKSingh AK

    The rate of alkaline hydrolysis of ethyl cinnamate was measured over the temperature range of 20°C to 40°C in water-acetone mixture at different composition 30 to 70% (v/v). The influence of solvent variation on reaction rate was examined in term of changes in the Activation parameter. Depletion of ?H* and ?S* value with simultaneous increase in ?G* of the reaction in reaction media, reveals that the reaction is Enthalpy domination and Entropy controlled. The Iso- dielectric activation energy (ED) of reaction was found to decrease from 52.43 to 47.28. The Values of Iso-kinetic Temperature which is less than 300, clearly indicates that there is no appreciable interaction between solvent and solute present in the reaction media, i.e., reaction is not ion-dipole but ion-molecule type. ..
