The kinetics of the reaction between Fe(CN)64-and Br03-have been studied spectrophotometrically in the pH range 3.6-5.8. A mechanism is proposed in which the active species is Fe(CN)5H203-. The mechanism accounts for the observed complex kinetics, including the dependence on reactant concentrations and the effects of light. Numerical simulations with this mechanism give excellent agreement with the experimental results.
