Method Rate constants at 50°C were estimated from the equation of an Arrhenius semilog plot of the rate constant versus 1000/absolute temperature using the computer application, KaleidaGraph 3.5 (Synergy Software). Measurements at two or more temperatures were required to estimate the reaction rate at 50°C.
Comments The types of reactants are listed starting with those containing the most oxidized reactive group (–COOH) and progressing to reactive groups of higher reduction level. See notes beneath table
