Author(s): Sarika M. Jadhav, Narayan V. Lawale & Vinod A. Shelke

Oxidation of Dopamine hydrochloride has been studied at different temperatures using spectropho-tometer under acidic conditions. The effect of variation of substrate Dopamine hydrochloride (DPH), oxidant (KMnO4)and acid H2SO4was studied under pseudo first order reaction conditions. The effect of different salts and solvents on oxidation of DPH was also studied. The reaction was found to be first order with respect to oxidant, sub-strate and acid H2SO4.
