The rate constants for thallium(I)-thallium(III) exchange with various alcohols in sulfuric acid solution were determined. In all cases involving alcohols, methanol, ethanol, 2-propanol, 2-methyl-2-propanol, the reaction rates were not accelerated. The larger the formation constants of solvato-complexes for 2-propanol and 2-methyl-2-propanol lead to lower reaction rates in the solution. The mechanism of the exchange reaction was also studied.
