Preferred Abstract (Original): 

Kinetics of the oxidation of triallylamine by hexacyanoferrate(III) in alkaline medium have been studied. The rate is independent of the concentration of Fe(CN)6(3-), while the orders in [triallylamine] and [OH-] are nearly unity and 0.33 respectively. The rate of the reaction is not retarded by added Fe(CN)6(4-) ions. The effects of ionic strength, varying cations and anions of added salts, solvent composition and temperature on the reaction rate are reported. A suitable mechanism has been proposed.
