In this work, the kinetics of oxidation of Ethylenediamine and Ethanolamine by Potassium Ferrate (VI) has been studied by using stop –flow spectrometer under alkaline media. The results show that the oxidation-reduction reaction is a first-order to reactant and a negative fraction order to [OH-]. A convincing mechanism involving a slow response as the rate-controlling step is proposed and the rate equations derived from the mechanism was shown to fit all the experimental observations. The rate constants of the rate-controlling step and the thermodynamic activation parameters were calculated.
