Oxidation of cyclohexanone and 2-hydroxy cyclohexanone by vanadium (V) is moderately catalysed by sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) micelle in HClO4 midium. The kinetic features in presence of SLS are similar to that in absence of SLS. The catalysis by SLS has been rationalised by Menger and Portnoy model. Low binding constant suggests that the reactant molecule is bound to the micellar surface through the hydrophilic binding.
