The kinetics of oxidation of ethanolamine by potassium diperiodatocupate (Ⅲ) was studied spectrophotometrically in alkaline medium at 293-2-303.2K. The reaction rate showed first order dependance on Cu(Ⅲ) and positive fractional order dependance on ethanolamine. It was found that the pesudo first-order([EA]. >>[Cu(Ⅲ)].) rate constant kobs increases with the increase of [OH-] and decreases with the increase of [IO-4].There is a negative salt effect of addtion of KNO3. The active species and a plausible mechanism involing free redical have been proposed. All the experimental phenomena can be explaimed by the rate equation derived from the mechanism. The rate constant of the rate-determing step together with the activation paraments have also been evaluated.
