The rate law is found to be of the form.
-d/dt [RH] = ( a + b [H+]-1 ) [RH]
where a =0.30 x 10-2 mol dm-3 min-1 and b= 70.58 x 10-2 mol dm-3 min-1 and a pH range of 1.0 [H+] 3.5 x 10-4 mol dm-3. The results from kinetics studies and spectroscopy investigations did not implicate complex formation. A plausible mechanism is proposed for the reaction.
KEY WORDS:- Rosaniline hydrochloride, sulphite, kinetics and mechanism.
