Kinetics and mechanism of oxidation of leucine and alanine by Ag(III) complex were studied spectrophotometrically in alkaline medium at constant ion strength. The reaction was in first order with respect to Ag(III) complex and amino acids (leucine, alanine). The second-order rate constant, k−, decreased with the increasing in [OH−] and [IO4−]. A plausible mechanism was proposed from the kinetics study, and the rate equations derived from mechanism can explain all experimental phenomena. The activation parameters were calculated at 298.2 K.
