The kinetics of the oxidation of aspartic acid by peroxomonosulfate catalyzed by ruthenium(III) chloride was studied in acidic medium. The stoichiometry of the reaction corresponds to a reaction in which a mole of the amino acid reacts with a mole of peroxomonosulfate ion. A plausible reaction mechanism has been suggested and the derived rate law accounts for all experimental observations. Activation parameters have also been evaluated.
