In this work, the kinetics of oxidation of Sarcosine by Potassium Ferrate (VI) has been studied by using stop–flow spectrometer under alkaline media. The results show that the oxidation-reduction reaction is a first-order to reactant and a negative fraction order to [OH-]. A plausible mechanism involving a slow response as the rate-controlling step is proposed and the rate equations derived from the mechanism was shown to fit all the experimental observations. The rate constants of the rate-controlling step and the thermodynamic activation parameters were calculated.
