This chapter illustrates that recorded kinetic curves were fitted to the five-parameter Equation. The parameters Pi with their errors and the standard deviation of regressions are summarized in the chapter. Comparison of the data confirms the previously reported similarity in the behavior of the two isomers in the presence of strong bases in spite of the different shape of the kinetic curves. The relatively good agreement of exponents P2, P4 computed for the diastereomer at the same temperature and amine concentration demonstrates the validity of the model used. From comparison of equations given in the chapter, it follows that both reactions must give the same exponent.
