Abstract : As a part of the study of the mechanism of high pressure oxidation of aliphatic acids, acetic acid solutions were oxidized. No oxidation was observed at the end of several reactions without a catalyst. Increasing temperature showed an increasing reaction rate, while increases in pressure and decreases in concentration showed a decreasing effect on the reaction rate. (Modified author abstract)
