FENTON AND PHOTO- FENTON OXIDATION OF O-AMINOBENZOIC ACID
Dr. Dharmendra Kumar*
Photo-oxidation of o-aminobenzoic acid by Fenton reagent was studied. The effect of various reaction parameters such as concentration of substrate, H2O2, Fe+2, pH, polarity of solvent and catalyst variation was studied. The progress of the reaction was observed by TLC. Photoproduct was characterized by physical, chemical and spectral methods. A tentative mechanism has been proposed with overall reaction.
Keywords: Photo-oxidation, o-aminobenzoic acid, Photo- Fenton reagent.
