Problem

The rate law for the reaction H2O2 + 2H+ + 2I - → I 2 +2H2O is rate = k[H2O2][I- ]. The following mechanism has been suggested.

H2O2 + I - → HOI + OH-  slow

OH- + H+ → H2O fast

HOI + H+ + I - → I2 + H2O fast

 

Identify all intermediates included in this mechanism.

A. H+ and I

B. H+ and HOI

C. HOI and OH

D. H+ only

E. H2O and OH -
