Abstract : The rate of hydration of ethylene in dilute aqueous perchloric acid was measured in the range 170-190C at 100 bars and 100 to 3 000 bars at 180C. The energy, entropy, and volume of activation are 33.3 = about 1 kcal/mole, -5.7 = about 2.5 cal/deg/mole, and -15.5 = about 1.5 cu cm/mole respectively. The volume of activation shows that at least one molecule of water is strongly bound in the transition state. (Author)
