Transition Metal catalysts
H2O2(aq) + Br2 2H+(aq) + 2Br-(aq) + O2(g)
H2O2(aq) + 2H+(aq) + 2Br-(aq) 2H2O +Br2(g)
more successful collision/ more particles reaching Ea= faster reaction
S2O8 (aq) + 2 I (aq) 2 SO (aq) + I2(aq)
2- -
Slow reaction
Both ions negatively charged and repel
Iron (II)ions catalyze peroxodisulphate oxidising iodide ions to iodine
step 1 S2O82-(aq) + 2 I-(aq) 2 SO42-(aq) + I2(aq)
step 2 2Fe2+(aq)+ 2I-(aq) 2Fe2+(aq) +I2 (g)
self indicating- pale pink
another titration
Cr2O72-(aq) +14H+(aq) + 6Fe2+(aq) 2Cr3+(aq) + 7H2O(l) +6Fe3+(aq)
