DEGRADATION AND EVALUATION OF KINETIC PARAMETERS OF ANTIPYRINE IN BUFFER SOLUTION BY CYCLIC VOLTAMMETRYRAJDEEP MALIK, DUSHYANT GANGWAR AND JASVINDER KAUR
In this work, anodic oxidation of Antipyrine was carried out in phosphate buffer on a platinum electrode by employing an eco-friendly technique, cyclic voltammetry. A well defined anodic peak was shown by Antipyrine in phosphate buffer at pH 9.0. The oxidation process was shown to be irreversible and the number of electrons (n) transferred in the process was calculated. Kinetic parameters for the reaction such as standard heterogeneous rate constant at the rate determining step, electron transfer rate constant, electron transfer coefficient of the reaction and formal potential of the electrode were calculated under the influence of scan rate (v).
