Mechanism of permanganate oxidation of aliphatic amines

The mechanism of the permanganate oxidation of benzylamine and benzylamine-α-d₂ has been investigated in the pH region 2 to 14. The deuterium isotope effect, kH/kD, was found to be 7-0 from pH 8 to 10.7. The absence of salt effects and the observation that the oxidation rate followed the ionization...
