Abstract
This poster focuses on the kinetics of oxidation reactions involving the chromium (II) ?,?,??,??- Tetramethyl-1,3-benzenedipropionic acid dimer, Cr2(H2esp )2. After synthesizing the dimer and verifying its structure with 1H NMR spectroscopy, Cr2(H2esp)2 oxidation reactions with organic peroxide oxidants are completed within a UVVis spectrometer to generate data regarding the reaction progress. This data is then used to calculate kinetics information, such as the rate constant, for each reaction. The kinetics of these Cr2(H2esp)2 oxidation reactions can then be utilized to study the dimer’s efficacy as a component for energy storage.
