Anionic (sodium lauryl sulphate, NaLS) cationic (cetyl ammonium bromide, CTAB) and non-ionic (Tween-80) surfactants have been found to inhibit the rate of oxiadation L-proline and L-methionine by alkaline KMnO4. A first order dependence of rate of oxidation was observed with respect to MnO4 -. The order of reaction in substrate and alkali was found to be fractional nearby 0.65 and 0.55 in Aminoacid and OH-, respectively. An aggregation/association between MnO4 - and surfactant has been confirmed spectrophotometrically. A mechanism, involving kinetically inactive [MnO4 - surfactant] aggregate and consistent with kinetic data, has been proposed. The effect of surfactants has been discussed in terms of hydrophobic and electrostatic interactions.
