The oxidation of aniline in glacial acetic acid with percarbonate, a dry carrier of hydrogen peroxide, is a second-order reaction conforming to the isokinetic relationship. The hitherto followed method of correlation of the reaction rates in terms of the structure−reactivity relationships is unsatisfactory and erroneous. But the reaction rates of molecular anilines, obtained for the first time, conform to the structure−reactivity relationships.
