The kinetics of one electron transfer mode seems to be not available for PiDCwith Cobalt (III) bound and unbound complexes of α-hydroxyacids in surfactantmedium.PiDC oxidizes Cobalt (III) bound and unbound α-hydroxyacids. It rules out thesynchronous C-C bond fission and electron transfer to Cobalt (III) centre. Oxidation ofabove complexes increases with increase in temperature. Theincrease in the rate isobserved with increase in the concentration of the surfactant. The added Dodecyl benzyl dimethyl ammonium chlorideenhances the rate of oxidation of a reaction much more than PLS. Similartrends has been observed in lactato, glycolatoand mandelatoCo (III) complexes.
